Heart's Drum

Alliterative Verse

Heart's Drum

Rise up to the rhythm. Who raps the drum anew?

Hammering your heart’s cage—I see who it hails to.

Your deepened desires call. Do you know what dreams brew?

Your fire is not fragile. Know the beat and fight true.

Vow your vision to keep. Your valor they shall rue.

Wage on your warfare, friend, and win your treasure due.

Let not your courage cease, the drum will carry through.

Let not your sound silenced, the drum beats sole for you.

    Perfect rhythm of a drumbeat

    Like Paul wrote, the music in this poem is striking in how it drives the rhythm and pacing of the piece. Great self-talk too!

    This is so inspirational, and I love the flow. It has a musical feel. Well done.

    Oh, I love this, Lindsay! Inspiring and motivational and encouraging and just packs a nice booming impact! I wanted to shout it out my window with my fist raised high...or something! ;)
