Heartfelt Intelligence - Poem by Bill Darrah
Why does love rob the mind to be felt?
The heart and brain are opposites
Rivaling over the power of love versus
The power of knowledge and wisdom.
Is love so foolishly ignorant that it must
Conquer the king of knowledge to win
The hearts of men and women?
Or is love so simple and unlearned
That it supercedes vastly deeper than
The shallowness and emptiness,
However learned in appearance,
Of knowledge uprooted from worldly descent
Aimed at intellectual advancement and survival
Thus overcasting the heart of desires
With clouds so thick a dense fog
Encapsulates the heart in the form
Of a mushroom cloud patiently waiting
To slowly dissipate into the dissolving
Realization of knowledge over love:
Complexity of brain over simplicity of heart
Challenging the brain
To allow clearness of sky and openness
Of possibilities within the brain that were once clouded
Impossibilities, all because the fresh air of emotion
Rushed in to save the breath of life
Of one who allowed love to uproot
Knowledge since knowledge rarely has the
Motivation to even try to uproot love?
Love, therefore, never robs the mind.
It merely impresses the mind with the love
That feels the knowledge
Filling the brain.
Love is so simple that it's profound.
Knowledge can only uproot love
If it meditates about love before
Challenging the true motives of love
Trying to challenge the motives of true knowledge.
