African Drum Class

The drum teacher told my mom

That I was over confident.

She didn’t see anything wrong with this

So neither did I,

But somewhere inside me

I understood what he meant,

What she didn’t

Or wouldn’t.

I had to learn that appearing to know

Was not the same thing as really knowing.

To maintain structure,

Rhythm has to be respected.
