Giving Intellect A Push

Thrilling to the incessant beat of the drums,
taking us along measures of rhythm, leading
the parade of life down existent pathways.
Pressing the notes, getting all they can
from each one as they stomp and roll around
my brain.
Untethered by any obstacle, no barriers ever
in the way, as my essence pushes itself into
the prime circle of light, where it shines
brightly in the form of illuminated imagination,
giving intellect a push in the right direction.
