What did you do today my love?
Asked the brain.
" Survived" replied the heart as she looked away from brain timidly.
She was exhausted beating yet, what was she to do? She is designed for it, to keep everyone alive. Yet somehow she questions her role in the body, she questions her identity as the most important part of the body.
Can she just rest for a second? Just a second of her own time. But she knows it is imposible she has to move on, she has to take every beat seriously, dutifully.
Hoping one day she would beat the drum again joyfully.
"Hang in there, one day we will", said the brain feeling the heart's frustration.
