Standing Drumbeat

Under your gaze
Judgement ruled
The court
Of your laws
I tried
And tried
An impossible task
Your mind made up
Closed
Shut
To any other possibility
In vane
I rubbed raw
My dignity
To grovel at your will
I stand no longer
Under the scrutiny
Of your disapproval
I rise
To the drumbeat
Of my triumph
