Be Still, My Heart!

What makes your heart go pitter-patter?

Be Still, My Heart!

I’m sorry that this passion is beyond your comprehension

but you see, it must be free

it’s been lost and misplaced

but never truly forgotten

I hear it calling

softly, but persistently

it is mine – my heart, my blood, my breath

I must go, before I die


Thank you for reading! We all have a passion within us, maybe it’s been hidden for a long time, but it’s still there. And it’s never too late! I guess this began as an idea for the “misplaced” challenge, but it became something else.
