I foresee a hopeless battle
Inside you
Between your mind and your heart.
Your mind wants to poison your heart
So it cannot pray to God.
Your heart wants to unburden your mind
So it will not put unnecessary
And unwanted pressure on the heart.
Indeed, this will be a hopeless battle.
God alone knows whether either party
Is going to win.
