Heart Over Mind by Desiree Cady
Heart Over Mind
They say follow your heart
She is supposed to know the way
But she is running away with my emotions
Which is making for a wonderful today
What if she is falling
Just a little bit too fast?
So scared she may be wrong
Lord knows she was in the past
So she has decided
To have a conversation with her mind
Despite what her heart says
She will take each day one at a time
She will not put up those walls
Guard herself from possible pain
There is no need to judge this ray of sunshine
By the ones who brought her rain
Live in the very moment
Take a step away from the past
The mind says give it a chance
Maybe the heart is right...
Maybe this one will last
I am a 33 year old mother of two beautiful girls who have been my saving grace. After a brutal attack a few years ago, I have been plagued by PTSD. After the attack and a few suicide attempts, I vowed to tell my story and help inspire others to get help and to know that they are not alone.
I am currently wrapping up two manuscripts for publication and am set to be published in an upcoming anthology that will come out mid - November.
