Message Of The Drummer

by Carmen

Listen to the drumbeat, listen to the sound
sending a powerful message and the impact is profound
It goes beyond the village, it goes beyond the shore
It travels on the wind and it reaches the very core
The drumbeat commands attention, the drumbeat demands respect
and if you are attentive you'll see the astonishment of its affect
The drumbeat tells a story of emotion, joy and pain
The drumbeat provides a history, accurate of where we came
The hands that beat the drum are wrinkled, scarred, yet strong
Implying a certain wisdom, aspiring to right many wrongs
The drumbeat sparks a rhythm
that ring throughout our souls
and within us burn a passion
where heartfelt desires flow
So while the drumbeat stir us to action
to direct, to nourish, to care
It's the message that unite us in bondage
to break free, to love and to care.
