Live as Your Heart Lives
Lyric Benson Fergusson
Where your mind wavers,
your heart overcomes.
Your heart can tame any monster,
your heart can devour any fear.
Your heart’s chivalry is incomparable.
Your heart’s genius
outsmarts what’s written on parchment
or etched on stone tablets.
Your heart sees an ogre
as an angel,
Just waiting to be born…
(with a soft kiss).
Are you brave enough to pucker up?
Your mind would rather run from sleeping tigers
several decades ago,
promised to eat you,
than face the unknowns of life.
Your heart knows that
is a miracle
waiting to happen.
Which lens do you choose to see this world through?
Your heart or your mind?
it’s all about perspective.
