The Treasures Of The Heart

Poetry By: ddrandall

I watched a movie a while ago. What a journey my thoughts have been on ever since. It all started with a thought, then words on paper for a script, then a movie, then a letter I wrote on my thoughts about it, a quote penned and now this poem.

The movie was "National Treasure". An action adventure. What was enlightening for me however, was Nicolas Cage's characters thoughts on treasure and what it meant. He led himself from the heart to look for his treasure, but his treasure was not the gold It was his path to it that created his passion. So that got me pondering...

Treasures of the head or treasures of the heart?

So my thought is this...

"Follow your heart, not your head,
but use your head to find your heart."

'Treasures Of The Heart' or treasures of the head

where is our heart, as we lay our heads to bed?

The hunters read their maps and follow fuzzy lines,

thinking when the treasure's found, it will all be fine.

So quickly the running head can get into the game,

then reaching for the stars and looking for the fame.

The money, the power, the cars and the greed,

the flow of adrenaline and the need for speed.

I've been there, done it, and I'll tell you my friends,

as quick as you can get it, is as quick as it can end.

These treasures some seek for years upon years,

following their dark maps, they descend into tears.

The thing we must treasure and not look beyond,

at the end of the day, how does the heart respond?

The lines on our maps I would like you to see,

are the arteries to the heart inside you and me.

The flow of life pulsing and creating a wealth,

that can't be achieved with monetary health.

When we start to get smarter and follow that flow,

and rethinking with the heart, a new path we go.

Then the true prize of our lives will begin to start.

following our maps, to the "Treasures Of The Heart"
