Head and heart

Sustainer of life, the bed of emotions, heart carries

A heavy load, braving the waterfall of thoughts gushing forth

From the relentless mind, making itself home, in the head

We are somewhere in between, holding the peace

The head needs training, the heart comes ready

From the first gasp of air to the last, respecting time

Working like a clock, every drop of the river of life accounted for

The heart’s position is fixed, the mind’s everywhere

Reining it in appears to wreck the peace

Running to the ends of the world, seeking the unattainable

To stay in place and give itself up, it doesn’t need to go far

For inspiration, the heart is near, always giving more than it takes
