Listen to your heart
Do not rely on what the mind concieves
Your heart has the keys to Heavens Gates
While the mind is too often decieved

Listen to your heart.  Listen!
For it speaks loudly and clear
Less your life be "a chasing after the wind"
If the voice of your heart is not revered

    Hi Larry. Very wise words to live by, beautifully written. It is after all within our hearts dreams are born, and to not follow them would certainly make life less worth the living. Awesome poetry. Love, Shar

    This is good advice, Larry. Sometimes we just do what everyone else does to be part of "a group." But inside there is always a voice telling us right from wrong. We can't go wrong by listening to our hearts. Very wise! Love, Carolyn
