The Joyful Tune in Life

Updated on January 28, 2018

There is a beat in my heart that I feel

The sound of war and drums

That echo inside me

The beat keeps me sane

The beat of drums inside me pulse through my lungs

I get caught and lose my breath

Then it goes silent

I can hear myself think clearly

The beat makes my mind go places

Takes me to a happy place

A place where I can dance and laugh

A place where I can escape

A place where their is no anger and sadness.
