Rhythm

Everybody's got it.
Even if you're tone deaf.
Even if you can't keep a beat.
Even if you can't dance.
You've got it.
Stop.
Listen.
Ch-ch-ch-ch...
The sound of a toothbrush moving across teeth.
Stop.
Listen.
Clip-clop-clip-clop...
The sound of shoes against floor.
Stop.
Listen.
Inhale...exhale...inhale...exhale...
The sound of air filling lungs.
Stop.
Listen.
Thump-thump-thump-thump-thumpthump-thump-thump-thump-thumpthump-thump-thump-thump...
The beats of life.
Your life.
Your rhythm.
It grows.
Loud.
BOOMING!
Other people can't help but hear it.
They stop,
They listen.
chchchchchch-shshshshshshshshsh-sizzle-crack-pop-crash-BOOM-BAH!
Your life.
And that's when you KNOW you've got it.
Deep.
Deep down.
Soul.
