May 06, 2010 - Battle Within

 
Battle Within

If the heart is the master of it all
Where does the mind fit in
Is there a battle going on inside each of us
A war going on within

Does the mind ever take on the heart
Attempt to take control
To change all the heart desires
Could it be so bold

If the heart is truly pure in thought
Impartial in its ways
Then by what means does it think
If the mind has no say

Is it possible for there to be peace
To stop the war within
For the mind to just rest in the heart
Held close there as best friends

Probably not - not all what the heart desires is good for us ...

the mind and the heart should mingle as one in perfect harmony but sometimes that isn't always the case when faced with challenges. almost like two separate bodies. it would take steadfast discipline to put them both in balance. that is where, the spirit and the flesh comes in. great post neva. another thought provoking post.

Dear Neva,

The mind is directing thoughts, likes, or dislikes to the heart.
This is simple and straightforward philosophy. When you like someone, the mind shows the positive vibes and feeling of love or dislikes towards another. In addition, you might feel neutral too. That is my personal opinion on your quest in your poem...Great poem, well thought, well presented too. It is a psychological poem, about human feelings.

Excellent work in poetry,
Congratulations!
