I come from a world,
where mountains and valleys
hold their grounds.
I am the talking drum,
voice of the voiceless.
I am the bridge that connects
art with the heart.
I am the diamond in the rough.
I draw feelings 'cos I'm skilled with pencils
I write right, base on literature's rite.
I wrap my feelings in beat.
I act art in all ways
I act always.

I found this to be very well written. My only suggestion would be to get rid of the abbreviation 'cos, 4 lines from the bottom as it's too informal. Why not "since" or "as" or even a semi-colon???
