Journey from Mind to Heart: A Poem

Val is a life-long practically oriented student of effective emotional and attitudinal responses to the many challenges of life.

Countless books befell these seeking eyes

and a past pregnant with unfinished quests

with all those unnoticed blessings in disguise

well, there went this life throwing in more tests.

Still preying alertly for yet another sound

to come from Truth ever stingy and mute

swimming out of lies after almost drowned

with so much to debunk, so much to dispute.

Libertarian madness of studious mind

turning this world somewhat upside down

it could not have been worse if I had gone blind

despite all that crowd around me I felt alone in town.

From that well of some uncried tears

emerged a muse never known before

brought with it balsam of healing cheers

turning all those tears to wine forever more.

With a peeled off ego, its demands on others

every breath is now a sweet sigh of relief

no one to blame, nothing ever bothers

joy flooding mind and every belief.

Now, paying my debt to that child inside

by stopping that futile questioning life

I took him by hand for a happy ride

free from any turmoil, any strife.

So, if god shared his image with man

this child in my heart could qualify for it

both of them are following their divine plan

with the same purpose in heart - to explore it.

Well, there is no Truth beyond that heart

and that's why I allow it to always guide me.

Am I maybe dreaming, but I can't wander apart

from someone in my shadow always here beside me.
