There's a pulse

In the world.

An infinite life.

It's hope,

It's memories.

It's a Being

that wants to be discovered,

to be of use.

It lets you absorb it,

Then you're one.

You feel the pulse,

You are the Pulse.

You just are,

As everything just is.

I love the idea of this--the idea that everything is connected and we are all part of the world. That is a really beautiful thought you've conveyed with this. My only thing would be to be careful about punctuation: sometimes the sudden periods disrupt that feeling--the feeling of everything being continuous and connected--this poem invokes.

I treasure those moments when I can lie motionless on the grass, hear the bees buzz, feel the sun beam, see the clouds drift, and I, as you so perfectly said it, just am, as the universe is. Not too many people take the time to appreciate that pulse nowadays; I'm glad you're drawing attention to it. This is simple and sweet. :)

I like the idea, but I think you might be trying a little too hard. You need to just let the words flow.

Can't really give you a long review, because your poem is only fourteen lines long... however, as brief as it is, it still gave me chills a little. There's a great theme in your poem -- one that deals with the interconnectedness of everything in this world. Everything plays a part, and everything is a part. You have some really interesting thought processes!
