My Heart’s Music

my heart’s music

written by: Linda M. Crate



my heart is a broken thing
yet it still makes music,
has a voice,
and reminds me to persevere
when i want to cave in;
it’d be easier to forget my dreams
to cave into the zombie apocalypse
glazed eyed and forgetting
never recalling my name or my purpose—
but i cannot
i have a heart, and a purpose;
a magic, a beauty, a worth
i am divine and powerful and i will use
my wounds to make myself stronger
until the scars no longer bleed
because i am a powerhouse
i will never fail
my dreams and heart will lead the way
through all my struggles until paradise is tangible
and not just another dream away.
