I Can March to My Own Beat


Faith has kept me strong

Though it seems my suffering has been long

I always pray for a brighter day

Allowing my heart to lead the way

For my mind sometimes gets clouded

With evil thoughts enshrouding

The light I know that lays within

Exclaiming that I should never pretend

To be someone or something I ain’t

So I go through life with seldom a complaint

But my perfect flaws

Sometimes cause me to pause

Thanking the Lord for my lion heart

Because I do not have it’s paws

Faith keeps me strong

Showing me how to right a wrong

Thus I’ll keep going on

Flawlessly I’ll fight to my drum’s song…

...lub dub...lub dub...until I’m gone.
