Heart And Mind - Poem by AHO Speaks

Dare you be different and express your thoughts
Be prepared for those who do not.

The heart to the body plays a major role
Bu devoid of feeling and thought and no connection with the soul.

The mind is conditioned first to imitate in order to learn
That the experience of touch, can pain and burn.

The mind learns early about the power of sound
How to get attention to desires and others to surround.

Finally to ask and seek but not always encouraged
Authority needs to speak and too many quesions; are discouraged.

The heart has no function other than to support the mind
Of course it still has value on the day we call Valentine.

A heart cannot think, compare or recall
Other than pumping blood with oxygen and nudtrients; it does little at all.

The human mind is capable of many things and the gift of thought
To make decisions and choices of value and also those of naught.

Only with the mind can a human know of right and wrong
To know where we came from and to whom; we will always belong.
