There’s no beat inside my chest so I beat it now to see

If stayin’ alive will be the best opportunity

To beat some blood into this brain set captive thoughts free

Beat feeling into these two hands if temporarily

And maybe

Just maybe

By some rhythmic art

Beat by beat

beat by beat

Jumpstart this faulty heart

Stalled – Stacia Joy

  1. Love this piece. It’s short but holds so much power in its few words.

    I run a blog on mental illness called “Dear Hope” join the community here:


    • Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad (kind of? it’s complicated?) it resonates. And thank you for the invite. I already have a strong support group in place, but I will certainly check out the community, if only to perhaps recommend it to others.
