Hello! I’m the mind.

and i’m the heart.

This is a poem about me

this is about what i need

I am strong and self-confident

i just want someone to listen

I don’t let anyone tell me different

why won’t anyone listen?

I make good decisions

please, i just want to be heard

And I always win

i just want you to know how i feel

Sometimes, people listen to Heart

but not always

And Heart is wrong

but not always

Heart doesn’t know how to use logic

because sometimes i’m right

Or how to explain how they feel

But sometime’s i’m right!

Heart is just plain dumb-

Mind, just LISTEN!

i may not always be right,

i may not always know the logical or sensible thing to do

i may not be strong,

or smart,

or careful,

But i can love,

Isn’t that enough?

Isn’t it enough to know that i am okay?

Or does everything have to be explained with logic and sense?

Not every decision i make is the smartest but

Sometimes it takes a risk to change your life

To change your mind

I guess-

I guess I’ve never thought about it that way

(to be continued)

This is a little back-and-forth from, obviously, the heart and mind that i had when i felt, well, not my best self. It seems like all my best thoughts are when im "not waving, but drowning."
