The Faithful Beat


How do I silence those steady drums?

They patiently wait for me each night,

catching  my head as it falls upon the pillow.

Thumping that causes such pain

Faithful beats that make my eyes begin to ache.

Their rhythm slowly spreads throughout my body.

Restlessness reigns.

Oh drums of drudgery, how long will you haunt me?

Failure.  Failure.  Failure.

The drummer’s chant is always the same.

If only I could step out of the circle

and listen for the deeper voice.

One that reminds me what is real.

The inner voice of Love that calls me into rest.
