Beat of the Drums

Location

The wind stirred 
And billowed about
My heart beat 
As steady as the drums
 
I was ready.
 
Spreading my arms
I looked at the crashing sea below
It was crashing
As steady as the drums
 
Leaping, I took the chance.
 
I fell short
And tumbled down
The rocky side
As steady as the drums
 
I took one chance-
One leap of faith
I fell too short
I missed the beat
 
It was a leap I took
And a leap I may never take again
