Heart Over Mind (In Search Of God) - Poem by Maia Padua
As my thoughts wander aimlessly,
At the trees nearby, my eyes gaze steadily,
My mind is delving for answers;
Of nonsense questions poisoning my mind,
From those things that's making me blind.
'Is there really God? “
Am I blind not to see Him around?
Am I deaf not to hear His voice?
Am I too numb not to feel His presence?
Too fool not to believe on His omnipotence.
I silently listened to soft voices within,
Heart is explaining, mind is arguing;
“Oh mind, try to find the answers from trees,
From the wind, from the rain, from everything”
Try to see the things around you,
Try to listen of the voices too” You will know.
The wind which happened to pass by asked
“ Mind, Can you make those trees sway?
The tree looked skeptically;
“Can you make my branches turn this way? ”
Who can make the rain, the wind stop suddenly?
Who made those things? Who made you, and me?
“Let your senses work;
Your eyes see and your ears hear
Let them answer for you'
Try to close your eyes. You will know
After looking around, mind closes his eyes
Let his ears listen, to any voice he would hear.
Drifting, heart’s gentle voice caress him like breeze;
“Oh mind, have you seen God, have you heard Him? ”
The mind answered meekly, “Heart, now I know;
I saw Him by the swaying trees, the cloudless skies
I heard him from the rustling wind,
The chirping of the birds that freely flies
From the laughter of the children playing
Under the trees and in the running streams.'
In everything I see, in every sound I hear
God made them all, God is here,
