Metronome Heart

My heart
Beating
Back and forth
Back and forth
Steadily hitting
The side of
Yesterday
And Today
 .
It beats at a steady rate
And I play my life accordingly
Nice and steady
Nice and steady
Even with criticism
I continue to move
Savoring every day
Like it is the last
 .
They say it’s outdated
It dampens their creative spirit
They criticize
They criticize
Old tradition
Its something
Still in my heart
But not in others
 .
It’s like the joy
Of mixed tapes and radios
Playing in my heart
Playing in my heart
The tradition
Is observed
But like many
It will soon pass
Nice and steady
Nice and steady
.
