    The mind's a teribble thing to waste
    I read one summer day,
    but there's so much about the mind
    the ad just didn't say.

    The ad didn't say what the mind
    could conceal....
    or that the mind sometimes can't
    tell the fake from the real.

    It definetly didn't say the mind's a computer,
    a tool or plaything like the hammer or scooter,
    rolling along, keeping all things on file...
    remembering things from when you were a child.

    It can learn sounds, colors, languages and art,
    but the mind can't speak the language of the heart.

    Think about people, think hard if you can,
    how the mind defines every darn thing made by man.
    It can calculate numbers until there are none,
    and measure the distance from the earth to the sun.

    Invent and recreate in the image of God itself,
    sink real low or excel high on a shelf.
    It can explore itself down to its finest part,
    but the mind can't speak the language of the heart.

    It can describe every organ and tell you its reason,
    give a breakdown of time in seconds or seasons,
    explore the galaxies of altered demensions,
    establish new governments or stir up discensions.

    Bring you from darkness into divine light,
    or establish those ethics to divide wrong from right.
    But of all those things the mind can impart,
    the mind can't speak the language of the heart.

    Luv Ya

    yes...the mind and consciousness
    is what makes us so unique...
    but the heart and soul...
    goes beyond...logic & reason
    and it's language is often
    so deep....
    it steps beyond that reason...

    love the flow!

    Yes, the heart holds things that the mind can't fathom. You always give us something to ponder in your scribes. Diggin this awesome flow.

    a great effect

    brother keita, your piece caused a great effect on my mental. for it is said that the mind is black, thoughts come in different hues, the heart is pink= red (passion) + white (spirituality in the here-after), our chakras are blue (replenishing) + yellow (healing)= green. so, when the mind sparks a conscience (yellow) ion to travel downward (as it does so often) and we comply the green (made from metaphysical y+b) mixes with a passionate heart and the thinker craves more of your thoughts. i.e each one teach one!

    thank you, gracias, mercy, tawuhaat akhu mustashafeeya

    so that's why sometimes my heart and head don't agree....

    nah, real talk tho....

    sometimes a poem just says so much .......

    what a great couple..... and great is an understatement....

    I don't know the word for it in "language of the heart".......

    but I've finally figured out how two = one

    Lovingly thinking of ur fam.....

    One
