The Beat of My Heart

July 6, 2008
By Aricka Anonymous, Chicago, MS

like the roaring thunder
and pounding rain
the sound drowns out
all that is sane
the sound is a rhythm
and exhilerating song
a turning point
of right and wrong
a striving moment
in a suffering life
the sound cuts through
like a sharpened knife
the sound has feeling
it listens; it learns
the sound has meaning
it hopes; it yearns
the sound has no end
no middle, no start
the sound is the beat
the beat of my heart
