    DREADFUL DAY(beat of the drums)



    What a long draining dreadful day!
    Time has crept by like the speed of
    a toddler on a two wheel bike.

    The clouds are having their convention!
    The chit-chattering from their movement
    has tainted me to write

    *Sigh* As I sit and wait to greet
    the comings of a brighter tomorrow.
    Restlessness has my body twisting in sorrow

    Drifting on the coolness of the air
    I faintly hear an ancient beat
    *tatata* tatata* tatata*thump*

    I sit erect in my chair as if it will bring
    me clarity. I heighten my hearing
    beyond it's regularity.

    *datada*datada*datada* thump*
    Something electrifying is on the air
    Creating new rhythms in the atmosphere

    DRUMS!!! My ancestors are calling!
    Calling me home! My whole being gets excited
    whilst the body becomes numb

    *tatata* tatata*tatata*thump
    *datada*datada*datada*thump
    *tatata*datada*batada*thump*

    The swaying of my spirit has desserted
    my flesh. It has left my body to
    welcome my past

    A past generation of warriors so brave
    With Iya(mother) and Baba(father)
    paving the way

    A ceremony to family
    a ritual to honor life
    The calling home of all soldiers
    and children alike

    A bloodline so rich that it don't
    matter where in the world you may be
    When the ancient ones calls for you
    just be prepared and ready to leave

    And just to think,
    this all evolved when
    I was feeling a draining dreadful way

    It just goes to show
    you'll never know
    the path one will take
    in the course of a day!

    Ashe! Ashe!

    COME JOIN THE CEREMONY FOR MOTHER'S!!!!!!!!
    HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!!! :jumping: :party: :luvv: :wave:

    Those from long ago can call out to you in times of need, not there in flesh but ceratainly in spirit, so poetically put.
