    I Wish My Brain And Heart Could Agree

    I just wish that every once in a while my brain and heart would be in agreement. Instead I'm consumed by the never ending rival between what my heart feels, and what my brain is telling me I should do. Their arguing drives me crazy.

    Sometimes I Wish, But Only Sometimes.

    Would Be Nice

    I've always followed my heart, and it has usually led exactly where I thought it would. I would really like it if I could get my heart to listen to what my mind is saying.
