Palpitation short poem

Photo by Melody Dragon

For Kevin and Rocco

When stress strikes
at the strangest hour
you wonder what
befalls you

as the trials and tribulations
of daily survival
test your patience and health.
Palpitations ring in your chest,

are a reminder
of your fragility
and fleetness of life.
You think your time will never come

But death strikes all
No one gets
out of here alive
So enjoy today – – –

live life fully
because you never know
when tragedy will overcome you,
take you from your family.
