Heartbeat/ You always keep beating/ Always keep going/ Always continue/ Heartbeat/ Even when you are broken/ You always keep racing/ Wish I was like you/ But I'm only human/ And when I am broken/ I will stay broken/ I will keep crying/ And sometimes/ I have to stop beating/ My rhythm gets broken/ Sometimes I stop trying/ I can't be that strong/ It's always hard/ To carry on/ To go that far/ I can't always last/ Sometimes I must stop and think/ WIsh I could be as strong as you/ 'Cause a heartbeat never stops/ Never misses a beat/ And I'm just not that strong/ No matter how much I wish I could be/ I just cannot win/ The best I can do is endure/ I guess I could always quit/ But what good would that be for?

The author's comments:
I have some kind of obsession with heartbeats,I don't know. They kind of fastinate me, I guess... you know, people's hearts get broken all the time, but the heartbeat just keeps going. It never even stops for a beat, and I wish I could be like that.

This is marvelous! I love the way you intertwined the image of a consistant heartbeat inside an inconsistant person. It really is a completely wonderful concept! Keep on writing and working with poetry! You are talented, and it really shines! =)
