Heart and Mind

24 Apr

Strange are men’s thoughts,

Strange is God’s guidance,

He gave a mind and,

He gave you a heart.


You do your will, you do your wishes,

And blame it on your heart’s say.

Did you forget he gave you a mind,

And sanely intelligence to think?


If He was here and saw you rot,

Becoming weak in your will,

Not doing what you are born to,

But beings slaves of desires,


He would but remove your heart,

And say, NOW use your mind.

Would you exercise conscious

choice, decision and intellect?


And be wise and sensible and sweat

At your tasks, be done with it, and

When you go back home and meet GOD,

See His satisfied smile dancing,


That would have made your stay,

At this humble Earthly abode,

Worth all the pains of fulfilled duties, and

Eternally feeling God’s heart in yours.

    Very interesting poem. But, without our hearts, would we even believe in God…??? This one will take a lot of contemplation….

      Read the last line again 😉

      Its like when you are doing your duty, and when you are working towards your goal, you should not be clouded and stop applying your will and be lazy and blame it on the heart. Its like, most often I notice people losing this will; humans have enormous power, wshen they apply their will to something.
      And when you are done with your duties, and when you are near to your goals, you would start feeling content and almost feel like realising God. It’s like you feel HIM in your heart. This poem almost did not express my feelings completely. But I hope you are getting the vein 🙂
