I am teaching my daughter to drum

This is the walking beat
I tell her

This is the first beat you should learn
It helps you to establish a rhythm
It encourages you to use both hands
It gives you a basic beat to build from

This is boring
She tells me

I am teaching my daughter to grow

This is honesty
I tell her

This is the first value you should learn
It helps you to see things clearly
It encourages you to be true to yourself
It gives you a solid belief to build from

This is boring
She tells me

I am teaching my daughter to love

This is self-respect
I tell her
This is the first feeling you should learn
It helps you to love yourself
It encourages you to love others
It gives you the freedom to say no

This is boring
She tells me

I am teaching my daughter to love
and respect herself

I am teaching my daughter to trust
and to be real

I am teaching my daughter to use
both hands to love others
to be free to see things clearly
to grow to drum

This is boring
She tells me

This is your basic beat
I tell her

This is the first beat you should learn

Tell her life at times is boring until you learn to beat your own drum, while avoiding the bad rythms so many others follow. Great pen
