Poem About Life's Internal Dilemmas

To me, this poem brings about those moments when you know what is the right thing for you to do and you know what you truly want. Deep within your heart you can feel it, but sometimes your mind and your logic overtake you and you end up not going for it, and sometimes you even regret it.

Heart Over Matter


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016 with permission of the Author.

When your heart suddenly feels
light, excited, at ease.
When you feel like your heart just knows what to do
and your worries are far from your mind as are you.

You know that your mind will start chasing,
racing to hold down your heart.
After all, it is there to protect it,
ever from breaking apart.

But in order to keep your heart happy,
like a child, you must soften your hold.
You must let it run free for a while,
follow and see what unfolds.

Your heart is stronger than what you would think
and recovers at much greater speed,
so please just try, every once in a while,
to give it the freedom it needs.

Believe in your heart and embrace it,
and give it all that you've got.
Because whether it turns for the best or the worse,
you'll be happy more often than not.
