Original Poetry

“The Drum Inside My Head”

By Nicholas DeRosia

 

I hear the drum inside my head

My stride weighed down by feet of lead

 

Time has now left me behind

Looking for something I cannot find

 

The things I love I cannot save

But for now I must be brave

 

I cannot speak the way I feel

For the one that seems so real

 

Things are going by and by

They seem to wait for me to die

 

I see the one for whom I care

It’s all I can not to stare

 

I wish things were not this hard

It seems that every path is barred

 

The web is catching all my thought

All the memories of what I’ve fought

 

This flow seems to have no end

For its will my mind will bend

 

All I want to understand

Is why I cannot stop my hand

 

This poem just goes on and on

My problem cannot be fixed by brawn

 

It takes a heart a will a mind

And that’s the one I wish to find.
