Head v Heart

Post  Lucie on Fri May 03 2013, 12:01

Oh a word to the wise, from within
You must first take hold stock, to begin.
Don't steam on ahead,
Knowing NOT where you tread,
Where in life does a 'fool' ever 'win'?

But set a plan that your heart can soon follow
live a life that's worthwhile and not hollow.
Never doubt that you can,
Stand up strong. be a man
Don't play into self pity and wallow.

No! Strategically plan- work the hours!
Bank your monies and just send her flowers.
Don't be outrageously rash
To spend well hard-earned cash,
Strive to be your own boss-with all powers.

Take a hold, be in charge, its YOUR future
Embrace life, find your love and just smooch her!
Grab that bag- fill with dreams
Let it burst at the seams,
But have fun, teach the love, share the laughter.

Tis' a dreamer's mistake to just flounder
Why waste time, counting cash is much sounder
Yes, its hard and its cold
But that's life, break the mould
You cant settle being a 'good all time rounder'?!

Life's too short to just trundle on through
Working hard at the same, wanting new
All this time you have waited
You should have DONE-with breath baited
And empowered your heart to be true...

Lucie, good poem and strongly done. You have so many good images and thoughts working, so many people can relate on one level or another. For instance, through my own mess, I heard you tell me to "Stand up strong. be a man / Don't play into self pity and wallow." And I never received better or more timely advise. Thank you. Your work, if I may say so without sounding condescending, is maturing well. I enjoy your poems. I know the searching of the heart, mind, body and soul can at times be taxing, but you, I'd wager, have the "Right Stuff." I'm prattling (afternoon meds). Thank you. Keep up the good work. Mike

Mike, I thank you enormously from the bottom of my heart. Your praise and encouraging words have supported me to continue scribbling when I had all but given up. It is comforting to know that you enjoy some of my odes and pleasing to hear that some words were able to lift your day.
Thank you. You are invaluable. xx
