The Drum

by Robin M. Butts

I am the strength that is put in every stroke that beats
The drum.
The drum that emanates melodious journeys through time
From home to this still foreign place..
It floods my ears with rhythmic tones
Through indigenous zones
Not just for my enjoyment alone
It reaches deep inside the quintessence 
Nurtures what has always been there
No matter how far away you have traveled 
there will always be that connection
To the drum that beats
through the melodious journey through time.
