Leap or Struggle?
The heart leaps forward without concern
while the mind is struggling to discern
if caution is the more sensible pace.
The heart meanwhile continues to race.
Some say you should follow your heart,
but what is passion without thought?
Yet thoughts alone can hold you back
as you seek to discover what you lack.
Passion has no time for such worries.
It is instead open to possibilities,
until it realizes dreams without clarity
of thought begin to unravel quickly.
The heart and mind must work as one,
using the wild creativity of your passion
and the discerning intellect of your mind,
to manifest a life that is one of a kind.
It’s not about whether to leap with abandon
or to struggle to find a leg to stand on.
It’s whether you can commingle the two
to create a more rewarding life for you.
I will read forever because it lets me visit in my mind the worlds that I will never be able to see; it helps me put away the stresses of the day and relax into the rhythm of the story before me; it lets me bring to the surface and experience without regrets those feelings I hide away; it lets me re-experience the thrill of first love through someone else's eyes; it keeps my mind juiced so that it will never desert me; it is always there for me even when there's no one else. I will read forever no matter whether it is print or digital because the words will always call to me. ~ A Sassy Scribbler
