when will you finally decide to resolve the discrepancies between your heart and your actions?

when will you finally decide
to resolve the discrepancies
between your heart and your actions?

you know what i’m talking about.

what is it you painfully ignore?

what are you putting first?
where are you placing your fullest intention?
what do you already know
that you need to change or improve, quit or begin?

when will you choose
to tread the path of your wisest thoughts,
rather than follow the well-worn, shoddy trail
of your resistance, distractions, and fears?

settle the dispute
between your well-being
and all of your mindless behaviours.

be brave,
for your own sake.

heal the parts of you
that are incompatible
with the language of your heart.

uncover your true nature
through the energy of your efforts.

feed your spirit
with the vitality it craves.
