Heartbeat- Iesha H.

I know of a love that’ll make you never want to sleep again
It’ll keep you up all night
Cold hands on your chest
It’ll clench your heart
Rob your happiness
Steal your peace
And make you beg, plead, fend,
For mercy
Pulse after pulse
Beat after beat
Quietly yet loudly
Half halfheartedly, but abruptly..slowly
Laying there
Numb
Still and Quiet
Not a single tear
Will drop

In a subtle way
The fast pace will ease up
But Listen Carefully.
Your heart speaks volumes you cannot hear


You feel pain
Then you feel nothing
You’re broken
Then whole again
Because bliss
Is the opposite of
solace
And in the midst of madness
A heart can beat slow
then suddenly fast

Unpredictable heart beat
Small but powerful instrument
Nonstop, Rhythmically flowing
Tuning the sounds of your internal melody

It’s you that scare me the most,
It’s like trying to control something that you’re not in control of
Or believing in something
You can’t see
Like Trusting a feeling
that can’t quite be
Or simply holding onto life steadfast
By a string.

Get Off The Scale ♡ - Steve Maraboli

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!
