Isn't It Time for New Resolutions....

Whenever my heart
wants me to represent
myself through it 
my mind turns combative 
and invites unwanted thoughts
turning my mood sluggish
I often wonder
why should it not 
let me "be" my 'heart'
Why do I have to be 
only my 'mind'
Just like any other combative
interference I  find
my dreams getting killed..
This war between
my heart and mind is often
silently witnessed by my soul
Spurred by its silence
sometimes, oh, sometimes
I do succeed in 
snubbing my mind 
and let my heart come
to the fore to represent me
and those days are never 
heavy or sluggish
They bring speed and joy
which I really cherish...
I know that I will have 
to be stronger
than my mind and heart
to support my soul
Well, then I ask you
isn't it time for new resolutions...


Combative hare
and the sluggish tortoise;
life represented




  1. We need to be a mix of tortoise and hare..head and heart..I love the carefree days you describe when heart rules..we must resolve to have plenty of them!

  2. I know that I will have
    to be stronger
    than my mind and heart
    to support my soul
    Well, then I ask you
    isn't it time for new resolutions...' it's always hard to push yourself to achieve what you should.

  3. I find this to be a constant battle good new years resolution for sure.

  4. Long ago I made the move to doing my resolutions on April Fool's Day. I have a much better feeling about them now.

  5. I would like the answer to this riddle.
    The eternal struggle. Heart or head and then the soul...thought provoking! As for New Year resolutions I still have not completed my list
    from last year so that will be my New Years resolution.
