The poems tug at heartstrings on their journey of discovery that recognizes the need to express oneas innermost thoughts, while realizing the futility of the effort, similar to spent energy that is neither created nor destroyed.

This new energy that allows them to put into words what was difficult to express may cause a personas heart to beat faster.
