The Choice (Harmony Of Head And Heart By Moe Hein)



Happiness of the --
     shall we say  -- outward life.
 Having what you desire,
     living as you wish.
Wealth, fame and power
     wit, strength or beauty,
All at your pleasure
     and you basking in glory.

Happiness of the --
     shall we say -- inward life.
Where contentment is wealth
     and love is beauty.
Where wisdom is power
     and tolerance is strength.
All that you nurture
     to live in harmony.

Between happiness of the two,
     material and spiritual.
If asked to choose
     which
would you rather lose?

(From Poems On Life)
