Matters of the mind or matters of the heart

which one takes precedence over the other

to the bringing together or the breaking apart

of fathers and mothers, sisters or brothers.

Not only family members but friends and neighbors

a village and town, city or metropolis

Are we the lovers or the haters

of country or nation and its populace.

A heart or a home and a mind on fire

who do we seek to come to our aid

could they help us or would they crush a desire

will we be divided or united, broken or made.

What drives us to do the things that we do

should it be the mind or the heart that will decide

about who stays and who has to move

what gets destroyed or built by our pride.

Is it banks full of money or seas full of oil

that makes up our minds to deprive

our children and their children who have to toil

and give up the fight for we took away their drive.

A heart or a home and a mind on fire

who do we seek to come to our aid

could they help us or would they crush a desire

will we be divided or united, broken or made.

Matters of the mind or matters of the heart

which one takes precedence over the other

to the bringing together or the breaking apart

of fathers and mothers, sisters or brothers.
