Some people say we should follow our heart
Not the brain,
And others say, use your brain not your heart to decide.
Well, usage of the brain with millions of neurons at work,
Without the heart in it,
Will lead into a labyrinth of blind darkness,
Into blind ignorance, nay to greater darkness
If they devote themselves to brain knowledge alone.
Sunless will be those worlds
Where materialistic happiness reigns supreme,
Robbing one of all intelligence,
Attached simply to fruitive activities.
The heart is much swifter than the mind
Sees all existence as one,
Shines with love, care and empathy.
Ready selflessly to be there for humanity
One can almost hear the heart speaking
“Can’t you see the number of crimes, mass destruction,
Treachery, divorces? Logic is not being used rightly,
People do not trust their hearts.
Hearken to me my brethren, the heart is stronger,
More resilient, can bear any stabbing, cheating
And it keeps on working without giving up,
It keeps saying, give a try again.”
Yes, let us use our brain to save our heart,
We need to save the world, we need to propagate
Love, hope, faith, humility, decency, respect.
Brain can say, “Look at me, most people choose me, honour me,”
But the heart will reply “I hold the answers you cannot see,
If you believe in me, the world will be saved I promise thee!”
