The mind and the heart–

sometimes they duel–

a dual nemesis upon

the being.

Black & white agree on

gray so why can’t

we compromise and

share these two

disparate parts of


To leave either out

is to do disservice

to our potential

to live fully.

Tough love?

I don’t know.

Sometimes.  But

not without the

heart leading

the way.
