Beating Drum

Beating Drum

A Poem by GreenEyedPoet
"

Written 5/7/15 "Quiet, I whisper To my little beating drum"

"



Dawn
is approaching soon
And though I am tired;
Completely drained
Every part of me
Feels restless right now.
I become very aware
Of the fast paced rhythm
Beating in my chest.
Quiet, I whisper
To my little beating drum
But it only beats louder
Demanding to be felt... to be heard.
Tonight it cries out echoes
Of wonders
Of what ifs and whys.
But even over all of these loud echoes
All I hear
Is thoughts of inadequacy.
[End]

Haha yes. And I'm thankful to have both those girls in my life to help me grow. :)
This is another poem I really love here. It speaks a lot of the struggles of the heart, the internal struggle of just about anyone and everyone living in this world. Great poem, just utterly beautiful :))))

I really liked this one Ashley, one of my favorite of yours I must say. It is sad but really well written. There still is a softness within that makes the reader feel the beauty hiding within. Great work! :D

That wish to melt into the background can be detrimental for our whole well-being and this 'little drum' seems determined to not be party to that. The shadows can afford us protection but no growth. There is conflict here.
- love that 'little beating drum' image - class!
