Pulse

In the night you can hear everything.
When you lie down to sleep, you feel the deep boom that echos in your chest, the beat that we like to call life.

What makes us different from the dead?
The pulse.

The feeling of blood rushing through our veins and back again into the heart.
And the contraction of those muscles that push forward not only our blood, but our lives.

The steady rhythm that we can never mute, the fluttering pace when our eyes met, the racing speed of the ‘boom, boom, boom’ when fear hits us…

This is what makes us human.
