Drum Beat

The drum beat wakes up the now
without our past being forgotten.
It speaks straight to an artist’s mind
and it riles up the downtrodden.

It reflects the panic of a soul
that’s been asleep for too long.
It forces a fool to make a move
before their moment is gone.

It is a song before it’s sung:
before a tune makes it pretty.
It is the core of who we are.
It is the culture of cities.

It is the weapon of a poet:
those who seek shall be given.
Some people’s words don’t always rhyme
but every life has a rhythm.
