A Different Drummer

I learned a long time ago
It is best to march to the
Beat of my own drum
Not to listen to the
Rhythms around me
For they might lead me
Into another dance
And my feet were
Oh so tired of being
Trod upon by
The heavy steps of
The singers that danced
To the songs that were
Sung before in time
But in the distance now
Came the sound which
I thought I would never
Hear…the echo of my
Own drum, played by a
Dancer who mirrored my
Steps and whispered a song
To my soul…
I tried to change the
Cadence and switch
The choreography
Yet he matched me
Perfectly each time
Until finally the drums
Became one…and
The dancers, interwoven
Moved to the music…
The song of the soul
Played to infinity
