My heart has aspirations, but my head gets in the way Always speaking up, to have the final say It says my heart has pipedreams, wild and shameless fantasies It promises it would never tell, such blatant fallacies It says the things my heart envisions, were never meant for me I need to be a grown up and accept reality Yet me heart, it keeps on dreaming, singing songs of joy My head gets even louder, eclipsing melody with noise It tells me my heart can’t be trusted, those who dare to dream big look like fools They follow their heart to disaster, all dreams and ideas but no tools Yet I have the heart of a dreamer, dreams light me up, spark my soul, bring delight Why does my head say it’s wrong, when my heart sets my body alight? The path to my dreams is unclear, but one thing is easy to see For my goals to be reached it’s essential, for my head and my heart to agree Synchronicity of body and mind, is the key to learning and growth For the sake of my dreams, I WILL find a way, to value and listen to both
This rhyme has sat on my hard drive for a while.
I like the sentiment but I feel that the cadence doesn’t quite work in some places.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from posting my writing online, it’s that what I feel happiest with doesn’t always hit home with other people.
And sometimes, when I post something I’m not too attached to, like the poem I posted last week, it hits home with many of you.
So I’ve resolved to stop trying to second guess myself and just post what I’ve written, come what may, without overthinking it too much.
