Drum Of Courage

 

As I walk down the halls of darkness
Blind and unsure of where it will lead
All I have is the beat of my drum
So I march to where I cannot see

The cold whispers of fear warn me
Telling me to go back where I came
The drum beat urges me to move on
Even if I will never be the same

Throughout the sleepless eternal nights
I walk even when I feel I can’t go on
This dark path was meant to break me
Beat me down until I am withered and gone

I fall to my knees in a puddle of tears
Awaiting the reaper to take me away
I hear the drum loudly from my heart
Reminding me of this path I must stay

Finally I see the end of the darkness
Fallen cherry blossoms gather at my feet
I’ve come to the end of my journey
My legs feeling tired and very weak

The strength I needed was hidden inside
In the darkness I had it all along
It was the drum of courage
That kept me marching to its song
