The Rhythm of My soul

The Rhythm of My Soul

All around the room
I hear the music play
It takes control of the children’s feet
And makes their bodies sway

No one can understand
The power of a tune
Because before I know it
The music stops too soon

It acts upon emotions
And can instantly change a mood
It doesn’t deny any soul
It’s not its nature to exclude

Everyone is welcome
As long as they are willing
To leave all their problems behind
And start their bodies swinging


Some may doubt this power
And even say it’s destructive
They say it’s only good
Is for people to act seductive


Yes, this may be true for some
But for me it isn’t this way
For me it’s how I can release
And let my stress fade away

So when life gets tough
And starts to take its toll
I forget the world and start to dance
To the rhythm of my soul
