Different people react different ways. Mine beats faster when I see her. Or hear her. Some peoples speed up because of pressure or stress. Some peoples slow down because of drugs or exhaustion.
Every day we wake up, get out of bed, and start again. What happens when we don't. What happens when that alarm clock never sounds or that sun doesn't peak over the mountain? What then?
Have you done anything with your life? Who have you become? Did you change the life of a small boy or girl? Did you invent something that will never die? Or will you fade away without so much as a tear shed for you.
I don't know. But I do know one thing. That one day that heart beat will stop. Stress won't make it speed up anymore. No amount of drugs could ever slow it down.
Did you do something with that heartbeat? You should.
