Heart or Head?

11 May

Which do you listen with?

Daniel Kemp

If I were to compare the things that I’ve done right

To the things where I’ve failed

Then the failures would come out on top,

But there has been more that I’ve attempted when the chances arose

Than those I ignored and did not.

To look back, to assess, to judge what was I

Is an impossible task to attempt.

As decisions were based on only what I knew

Not prejudiced by future contempt.

To have seen the future from that present eye

Demanded wisdom beyond my grasp,

But I tell you true as stand here today

It would still be my heart that I would I clasp.
