The Heart by Mikaela Fitzpatrick

the heart is a funny thing.

it pitters & patters, it skips a beat, it flutters,

it stops.

it starts again.

the heart is a funny thing.

every time you hear a thud, a scream, a beep,

it races.

it slows.

the heart is a funny thing.

intertwining strangers, friends, forgotten family,

it forgives.

it heals.

the heart is a funny thing,

with all the ache

and love

it brings.

~ Mikaela Fitzpatrick, Grade 12
