listen carefully…

listen carefully

the drums
have always had
their own language
patterns of speech
undefined by words
captured
in the soul
as vibrations of history
a history
of pain
spoken
in the drum’s
rhythmic refrains
of dark things
hidden
within the mind
how
strange
the many forms
that pain
can take
that we are willing
to dance to

  1. This is the power of music, it is medicine. Or can be, that is, too much of the music these days is for products and propaganda.

    But real music is food for the soul.
    Painful or joyful, if it comes from the soul it’s healing.
