POETRY: Heartbeat

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They tell me what to be cautious of,

And if what I’m feeling is real,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They warn me when I’m going to fast,

And help me keep my feet when I need to be still,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They beat fast in anticipation of possibilities that are near,

But they are slow and steady when I just need to hear,

I listen to my heartbeats,

When everything else is still,

They guide me because I trust them,

And I listen to push out the fear
