When The Brain & Heart Disagree - Poem by chanda panda

When the brain & heart disagree
One wants to do one thing
The other another
Seems to me the brain often wants to run
Get out before things get tough
It seeks to protect
In a way of fleeing

The heart...
Oh, the heart wants to stay
It knows where the safety really is
Where the happiness is
Or will be, once the storms have passed
So it’s content to stay
Waiting for the healing calm

Sometimes it’s troublesome
Deciding what to do...
When the brain & heart disagree

    Cute little poem
    but so right on
    About the only thing I wold like to see change is the removal of the second 'thing'
    'When the brain & heart disagree
    One wants to do one thing
    The other another thing'


    'When the brain & heart disagree
    One wants to do one thing
    The other another '

    Just my opinion though so take it for what it's worth
    Anyway,
    Liked it
    Tom
