“A Beating Heart” Poem of the Day (2022)

“A Beating Heart”

By Ashley O’Hare

Every human

is powered by a beating heart.

Every heart exists

with warm flowing blood.

How could a person

be created

with infinite warmth,

then choose a life of frigid cold?

I have to tell myself

you are like this

of your own free will.

I cannot accept

it it natural.

I refuse to believe

the atoms

that made you this way

exist within me.
