The Heart


Close your eyes, can you hear it?

A voice echos in the dark

It screams, yearning to be heard

To be brought to light, to be listened now


Wild, unabashed and full of wonder

Run, swim, fly, it commands

But what is that voice of which I wonder?

Is it the heart or is the mind?

Trickery lays within the mind

The ego lurks, plots with folly

War is waged by one

Love is given by another


Wonder I claim, love and wonder

For the heart cannot be quiet

And the mind cannot be trusted

So I must die in order to follow the heart
