they say that emotions are a part of us
a piece of our hearts we can tame
but do our minds really have a say
on those that conquer the game?
we tremble when we simmer
we shiver when we cry
our eyes, they shine with laughter
our hearts can never lie.
and though it is our head
that takes the lead in charge
it is our heart that pulls the strings
its say in choices large.
like when you cannot bring yourself
to praise those who go far
because the little corner of your heart
burns in flames of envy from afar.
or how tough it can be to speak up
when fear courses through our veins
do you still believe so truly
that our psyche holds the reins?
