Torn Between My Heart and My Head

As a poetic, I have a good poem for you. Torn Between My Heart and My Head

Torn Between My Heart and My Head

Torn Between My Heart and My Head

Am in a state of confusion

I need to make a conclusion

What am I to follow

My head or my heart?

My heart is directing me to right

While my head is directing me to the left

Where do I go?

Whom do I listen to my head or my heart?

It is said the heart is never wrong

But it has directed me a few times to the wrong direction

My head correct my directions but it has also directed me wrongly for a while

So what do I follow my head or my heart?

I want to follow my heart but I have been heart so am afraid

If I follow my heart I may loose an opportunity to love and be loved

But still am confused my head is guarding my fragile heart but my heart still yearns to be loved

So I come to a decision I have to make my head and my heart Work together

So I decide to love But with a condition

Of safe guarding my heart first

Reminds me of an article recently by Amani Utembu.

"WE (Me, my brain, and my heart)"


It is quite a struggle which we have all dealt with over time.

Who knows which is better?

Tricky one, but ultimately you have to make a decision, as you did.

The Heart is a spiritual Centre of energy in the middle of the chest. Most humans speak of emotions and feelings and yes, as you indicated, the mind can also trip us up.

The voice of Conscience comes from within and is much louder with Spirituality. Still, you will not move faster than Grace and life is a series of challenges, in order to inspire growth. Sometimes the mistakes are unavoidable.

Create in yourself, a feeling of acceptance, not wishing to succumb by any means, but should this happen, rise from the ashes and march forward bravely. Struggle is unavoidable.
