the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 40
beat

i hate that stupid beat
that one monotonous drone
i dread the crazy rhythm
i can only see what's shown

i see what's right in front
but i cannot hear
the horrid disability
brings me much fear

listen listen listen
but once i cannot hear
there's only what i see
nothing reaches my ear

even if it enters
my mind will block it out
a natural resistance
one i could do without

i want to hear the sound
clearer and right
but they hate that noise
and bid me use my sight

i want to listen harder
i dream to do it well
but each thought of not getting it
brings me the fear of hell

excitement drums in me
when i can hear a sound
no matter how soft
a new joy i have found

but when i think of all
that i have yet to master
the rhythm falls again
and i need to play it faster
