The Battle

Everyday I am in a battle. The war is internal. I have to fight between my mind and my heart. My heart is the child within me. It believes, imagines, hopes, trusts, loves, cares, feels. My brain is a man. My mind is logical, analytical, old and wise, experienced, judgmental, never trusting. I always want to follow what my heart tells me but my brain will not allow me. For I have been down that road and it leads to hurt, pain, and misery. So I turn to my piano. On it my heart reigns supreme. I expose my true self. The child that wishes to be free. I believe if I didn’t have this daily battle my music would be lacking soul & spirit. It is a bitter cup to drink from but in the end it is my gift-
