I write to live as my heart beats.
No one shall misconstrue it
as anything but my heart beating.

Sick, weary of life, afraid of what's to come,
tired of striving, ashamed of what I have missed,
I listen respectfully
and take from its rhythm the thought
to make nothing else matter
but the steady beating of my heart.
