I danced to it,
The song you sang
The notes you skillfully played
The melodies you brewed
I knew I shouldn’t
But I kept moving to the beat
Cause as much as I knew it was wrong
In that moment,
It felt so right
It felt soo good!
So I kept dancing,
Sinking deeper into the rhythm
Drowning in the symphony
All the while ignoring the voice piercing through my brain
I would try to silence it
But who can convince the heart?
Its ears had gone deaf, just as I had, to its plea
So in the quiet of the night
When sleep searches for prey
It would creep in
Robbing the pleasure rendered by slumber
Reminding me that though I enjoyed the rhythm,
That was all it would ever be,
So as much as I relished it
I think it’s time
Time I stopped moving to your rhythm
Time I stop dancing to your tune
And start searching for the real tune,
The tune that God created for me to dance to
Its time I start dancing to His tune!
*’The tune’ in this piece is alluding to the world, the society I live in and people whom at times I give certain rights that I shouldn’t.
To the times I act in a certain way or tweak who I am not because i want to, but because I’m out to please someone.
It’s exhausting and it robs life of all the fun it offers.
So I’m at a phase where I’m asking God to help me resist the temptation of dancing to all these tunes.
To incline my “feet” to dance to His tune alone.
For how beautiful it is, to be whom I was created to be. To be purely authentic!
