I am not taking sides

Big war happening between
mind and heart.
When will they stop
arguing about HIM?

A Question mark rises
in both mind and heart.
Both are moving fast
in searching for the answer

Mind gives loads of
examples to prove his side
Heart is also not tired of
giving controversial replies.

Mind  always tries to
brings up the topic  to argue
but heart is always ready to
give the answer especially when
the topic is about HIM.

Don’t say you recovered
from fever because of HIM
Your Doctor and Mom helped
you when you were sick.
You are so stupid.

Who is stupid?It’s you.
HE exists everywhere.
Yes.HE is in your mom
and the doctor who took care

Mind didn’t stop there.
Who is behind scoring
good marks in exam.
Hardwork or God’s grace?

Heart gives quick reply,
Remember to not forget
HIS grace exists
besides hard work.

Mind is a bit tired of
talking back to heart.
Heart took this chance
and put forth the question?

Did India win the world
cup cricket match without
LUCK and GOD’s grace??
Reply quickly as you do usually

Mind is ready to give answer
ofcourse,heart is in for debate
but I wish  to take a break
from both of them now

Sometimes swaying towards heart
feels adventurous since I
strongly believe in invisible
terms like luck,destiny,
super power,god’s grace.

Sometimes swaying towards mind
seems practical to me since I
can visually confirm about
what is happening????

  1. Mind and heart
    Heart and mind
    You do well sometimes
    Do leave them out
    The equation

    Have a bath
    Do everything
    Just nice
    Not thinking about
    The one you love

    I do it sometimes too
    And I have to say
    That when the thoughts
    of love
    Come back to my heart and mind
    They are not asking for anything
    Just for loving you

  2. I too believe in fate and destiny although there at times we are given choices that somehow led as to certain situations and events. There are also things that brings forth great outcomes because we really worked hard for it and not just luck. Awesome poetry.

  3. I envy people who believe without question Praveena. Beautiful poem 🙂

  4. It’s a pendulum for sure…then one does want to stop the clock from ticking. However, there’s more texture to a belief that questions back and forth.

  5. Thanks for the visit and comment.Your visit is appreciated!!!

  6. I try to listen to both, but will admit that Mind has had more influence on me so far. I’m ready to start giving Heart a bigger say. Beautiful, Praveena.

  7. dear Praveena, Yes…the questioning…always there for me too…Kahlil Gibran wrote: “Say not God lives in my heart, but rather we live in the heart of God”—-On my good days, I imagine myself as the extension of God’s Love/Light Being. Someone said to me during my journey, that the Love that drives ourselves forward into loving, is an extension of God’s Loving Being–we still have to decide to “cooperate” with choices that we make…I think it is all very difficult. There is that part of us that wants to be in control. There is that part of us that wants to affirm ourselves: “Yes, I did it!”…I think that is okay also…a little pride and belief in oneself cannot harm us or others–what do you think? Then there is that part of us, that delights in being in God’s Love–love begets love—and acknowledging we are of God’s Loving Being is so comforting and delightful…especially when we feel sad and alone…and lost. I think when we journey in the Quiet back to our Center of Being–we find LOVE. In any case, dear Praveena, I believe YOU have a loving heart and we all need YOU and your light being in our world! Great reflection…you made me think more deeply about God–the She/He cradle of Love…

    • First of all thank you so much for taking your time and giving your wonderful thoughts about God.I love Kahil Gibran quote about God,it’s excellent.Thanks for sharing.Every words you mentioned made me to think .Yes,there is delight behind belief in ourselves when we achieve something and also belief in superpower behind our success.When we feel sad,thinking about God’s existence is a soothing thing.Thanks again for the visit 🙂

  8. A very wise lady once told me ” when there are stuff in life we don’t get … just go with the flow … whatever your heart or mind say … just go with the flow 🙂

What you see is what you get....... birds, animals, and all sorts of things, but remember; Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don't strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt. .

Into Dawn

Brave in the face of night; Afraid to face the sunrise.


Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
