Who decides?

Too many complicated problems in front of me

Too many variables for me to evaluate objectively

The best possible decision I want to make

I try to include everything that’s at stake

So that with regret I would not look back

Knowing I did my best, I did not slack


A peculiar conundrum I often face

Both reason and intuition jostle for space

Within the framework of my decision-making process

Who do I listen to, for maximum success?


Then my inner voice speaks up, reminding me

Is success actually necessary?

What about a solution that does not

Guarantee success but gives more thought

To the greater good, whose human quotient

Is much higher, when such a solution your intuition presents

Shouldn’t it be the better choice?

So I sometimes listen to my inner voice

And select the solution that does not instantly

Reward me with results, quick satisfaction does not give me..


Sometimes my head decides, sometimes my heart prevails

When I listen to my heart, it never fails

To make me feel more at peace, more centered

I know that my inner voice has made itself heard..
