Calling all Pounding Hearts

Calling all Pounding Hearts
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

If only the world weren't on fire
then my heart would stop pounding.
But if both fire and pounding heart are true,
then we know two things:
we are alive and we are needed.

Calling all pounding hearts:
Keep beating.
There's a consuming fire
burning out there.
And we'll never make it
if you give up.
