This stupid beating object Hurts,

And sings,

And Jumps,

And Bleeds,

It Smiles,

And Laughs,

It Crys,

And Screams,

And Flares,

It Pounds,

And Drums,

It dances,

And Falls,

It Breaks,

And Cracks,

It Asks for mercy,

Pleads for it.

It begs for Halting,

And Sings For a faster beat,

It Crys for its Own doings,

And Desperatly , almost hestarically, looks for a solution to the Stupid problems it has caused.

This beating object falls far to easy,

And stays down far to long,

Its Gullible,

And stupid,

Its sensitive,

And hardly strong,

Its smart,

But only in the things it understands,

Its Beating, And surprisingly Still Works.

Even if only with effort,

My Heart Still Works at this,

Its pride is too big to Give up now.
