Give me that beat

We follow, trot, carry on,
down after what we think is what we want.
That safe choice that never quite makes your skin crawl or your heart jump,
But the safe-okay, better-than-being hurt choice.
Is that what we want? No. Is that what we need? Very much so. Does it blind our heart when we trust our mind? Mhm.

That heart beats within, pumping blood through the entire body.
What keeps you alive better? My heart...
Should I really ask myself the better to follow? It's never been wrong before. Just faith and trust. That's it.

The heart is the flashlight that shines the path when we seem lost on our journey to explore the world.
Give me that beat, and I'll always have the right answer..
