"Far Away Drums"



Amid the stresses
And things unresolved
I hear a drumbeat
As if from far away
Vocables rise and fall
Words from indigenous tongue
Songs that I don't understand
But my heart rises with them
And the tears fall
I want to dance again
To the drums far away
Too far away
Am I in the wrong place?
In the wrong life?
My heart dances along
From far, far away
Creator says
That He made me this way
To dance with my people
I must trust that the paths
He has chosen for me
Are not a mistake
And that one day
The path will bring me home
