Dance to the Beat of My Song


Will you dance to the beat of my song?
Will you shake to the vibration in my voice?
With every fiber in my being,
I sing the song of deliverance
The song bringing healing to the sick
And the weary finds that place of rest
The shaken is made still to stand tall
The oppressed sleeps through the beauty in my song
Will you dance to the beat of my song?
Taming the wildest child to sleep
He sleeps in the midst of tremors and shambles
Will you dance to the beat of my song?
The song that pops out of the lips even in quietness
The lips mumbling these words softly even as the mind resists
Will you dance to the beat of my song?
With peace being the key musical instrument I used
My cymbals are the love with which I sing
And the piano is the passion with which I start
Never startled by the emptiness in the room I stand to sing
Will you listen to the percussion in the drums?
So much of noises to the oppressed but carrying the message I tell
Will you heed to the voice heard behind sound of the flute we play?
Above all, the song of peace, love, joy and selflessness
The songs I never cease to sing with relentlessness
With the kick of each second, the mouth mumbling these pieces;
And I ask again, will you dance to the beat of the song I sing?
