War: the heart, the mind, the conscience

What do you do
When your heart yearns for one thing
And your brain wants another?
You listen a little bit to both.
But what do you do
When it is your heart that is in dispute
A half wants one thing
And the other wants another
Is it better to do then neither
Or is it better to mute them both
And listen to the conscience?

What do you do
When your conscience goes to war
With your heart and your mind?
You listen to the majority.
But what do you do
When you know the minority to be true
Because in fact, the heart is forever
In love with the conscience.
It is the mind, the mind it is
That tricks the heart
Into believing that
It is in quarrel with the conscience.

So what do you do, really?
You be a good human
And listen to the conscience.

  1. This reminds me of a quote I read somewhere,

    “ALWAYS … do good, It will gratify some … and astonish the rest”.

    But I will beg to differ on some of the points …

    That the heart is always in love with the conscience … depends upon the heart … is it pure … or has it been corrupted by greed, materialism …!!!

    I also believe only the mind and heart are at war … the conscience is there to keep balance … For If you start listening to your mind too much … you are just a logical machine … you loose empathy … and like you said … will always choose the majority … regardless if it feels wrong or right … all in all you lose humanity …!!!

    So now you start listening to your heart … but there is a thing with heart … which is great and bad at the same time … I just can’t get enough … So what If it FEELS right … whats the surety that what feels right is actually right too … not everyone feels the same … a Lie for a good cause … CANNOT make that lie … a Truth …!!!

    Hence the conscience … to keep balance between the two … and its this balance that keeps us good…!!!
