V O T E
Vote of non confidence in Heart
by those who saw Brain as saviour.
My heart shivers with fright,
how can we live in a world so cold,
so mechanical, so pointless.
Would it heal the problems on Earth
would it stop power hunger and greed?
I think not.
Never having been part of campaigns,
I now feel I have to raise my voice for the heart,
For love and compassion
For imagination and creativity.
My proposal is that we teach them to live
really Live a life in harmony;
Using every gift we have been bestowed.
Don’t be a slave of either
Embrace them both, they are yours.
Enjoy the power of a smile
Of thoughts and emotions set free to roam,
To reach the sky and beyond
to give praise to a beautiful world.
My vote is for confidence in both.
