Take a listen to this while you read :).The soundtrack of your life The rhythm that keeps you breathing Your heart beat. We all have one. It’s one of the things that make us all the same. But what do you do when the beats of your drum are torn between the songs of thousands and the song of your soul? Put your hand in mine. There are 6.9 billion people on this earth. 6.9 billion pairs of eyes 6.9 billion heartbeats and an infinity of decisions. Just hopped on a bandwagon? Question it. Just created a hip beat? Question it. Ran ahead without stopping? Question it. Question everything because the world is a sea of heart beats tugging and pulling at you telling you to join in and create either catchy verses or syncopated harmonies. Currents will try to carry you off but don’t let it merely pull you. Decide to swim along with it or swim the other way using your gut as your propeller. To tired of drumming or swimming against the tide? With your hand in mine I will lift you from this strife. But latch your fingers only if you care, for this song isn’t for me. It’s for your heart, your prayer. Birds of a feather flock together in this world where we’re all different, together. So put your hand in mine because alone you can fly but together we can soar. Soar above the trees and through the clouds never looking back and never looking down making loop-de-loops and drawing fantasies in the clear blue skies But if not, that’s okay I’ll be waving to you from the shorelines singing you songs of sweet victory confident that your decision can move mountains Just promise me this: Swim as far as you can with your life’s song beating loudly spelling out confidence saying, “Hey! I’m swimming for you.” Make sure that once you arrive you shake the hand of every smiling heart telling them of your journey telling them that you swam for the right reasons that you swam because the rhythm told you to Promise me that when all the other hearts fade you’ll look across the ocean towards the horizon knowing that I’m on that shoreline hundreds of miles away still singing that lullaby. And promise me you’ll come back and bring me my heartbeat when you do.
