War Between Head And Heart (Harmony Of Head And Heart By Moe Hein)


WAR BETWEEN HEAD AND HEART


The head and the heart


go to battle


each flanked by warriors.




The head has "Reason"


the heart "Passion"


as its chief commander.




Mighty are both


in persuasion and force


telling me what to do.


One does counselling


the other tempting


in between


I am indecisive.




Heave ho! the head pulls.


Heave ho! the heart holds.


So begins a tug-of-war.




I am moving


an inch forward, and inch backward.


Who shall the victor be?




An ounce of weakness


or


an ounce of strength,


the last 'tilt' rests on me.




(From Poems On Head And Heart)
