Rhythm

Music is around us Music is in us We were born with a rhythm The rhythm in us gives indication of the life in us I put my hand on my chest and I could tap dance to the joy of my heart I could sing to the flatter of butterflies in my stomach The sun rises with a pulse and sets with a pulse in my continent I walk in rhythm My footsteps are beats to this electrifying and captivating song The contractions that my mother had during my birth were in rhythm My thought patterns are in rhythm My speech is rhythmically upbeat and my pronunciation flows You could never call out my name out or rhythm There’s a rhythm that flows in my words when I write and the curves in my letters are like the staff notations to a Mozart piece The world will dance to the flow of my life’s progression and mouths will sing to the flow of my growth I am a song you could never rewind I am blessed with the art of rhythm that flows in my veins with the blood of my ancestors that were the origin of life The world is a baobab tree and I am its roots Watered by the tears of souls who boarded the Amistad against their will and shipped to the so called new world I am a song and you will dance to the rhythm of my walk You will leap to the electric beat of my heart beat and sing along to the harmony of my life’s rhythm The tone of my skin is evidence of a song never heard The brown in my eyes is the tone of the keys on my grand piano I am the Roots of a baobab and the world will dance to my song
