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.

A great poem Asim ji. While mind is ruled by reason, heart is ruled by emotion.Mind says one thing, heart says the other. Five stars for this beautiful poem.
