it’s so faint you barely notice it

like the constant tick of the clock on the wall

though steady

it is not static


fluctuating slightly

when you are hesitant

or when the ache in the pit of your stomach

trickles through the rest of your body

the tick quickens


but the smallest moments in life will restore it

when you’re at a crossroads and something clicks into place

or the warmth you feel

while surrounded by loved ones


you pass through these points daily

mere specks on a map

with little thought put towards this


like the beat of your favorite song

or your own internal rhyme

listen to what it tells you

don’t take its brilliance and presence for granted

keep it safe
