I Wish I Knew The Difference

I wish I knew the difference
Between head and heart
Between right and wrong
I wish I knew the difference
Between letting go and giving up
Between moving on and running away
I wish I knew the difference 
Between denial and lies
Between pain and anger
I wish I knew the difference
Between being slapped and being left
Between a broken heart and a broken ego
I wish I knew the difference
Between too late and never early enough
Between yes and okay
I wish I knew the difference 
Between then and now
Between thought and think

    By the sounds of this poem, I think you have found it. Excellent reflection here, it's so hard, we may know the answer, but when to act, that's the hard part. love, Kristin

    If you ever find out let me know. I'm pretty much in the same boat. I like the word choice. I think they carry your message very directly into the reader's mind where he/she tries to figure out if they know the difference. For me I started out with confidence that I do know the difference, that I'm special in my super intuition...I lost that feeling around "denial and lies". Maybe good poetry has to break the reader's ego too...
