Each day

Such extraordinary risks we ordinary folks take for our loved ones

In such ordinary ways in our daily lives

We would balk at heroism of legendary tales

Enjoy them in books and movies

But willingly take pills to rid ourselves of desperate depression

Calmly accepting the long term side effects

To just be normal for the sake of our children especially

But also our wives and husbands and parents

Just for one more day each day

Heartbeat

My heart beats hard sometimes

And I feel dizzy and scared

I think I’ll die

It races too sometimes

And I need to sit or lie down

And breath out slowly through my mouth

My heart beats hard sometimes

And I think I’m alive

Where Am I?
