On Cross Roads Poem by M. Asim Nehal

On Cross Roads

Rating: 5.0

My mind says - Leave it and proceed!
My heart says - Stay and believe,
Is it a tug of war between mind and heart?

When life is on crossroads - intrigue and pursues.
This is too absurd and at times looks so surreal
although my mind is strong and filled with knowledge
Whereas, my heart is full of wisdom inspired by experiences

Logic is trying hard to defeat dreams
Soul is playing games with body.
This tug of war is making life so meaningful,
like uneven waves in normally a calm sea.

Excellent poem. So well expressed. We are so often faced with this tug of war. As we move forward with life and circumstances change we are forced to make some hard decisions. Should we listen to logic or keep working towards our passions.......indecisiveness haunts us till end. Only a decision right or wong relieves us from this dilemma.

Being tugged this way and that at the crossroads----this is the 'CROSS' on which all human beings must suffer, no matter what faith they believe in,

It is a tough war and never will it end. The Id, Ego, and the Superego war.
