In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Gut Feeling.”
When’s the last time you followed your instinct despite not being sure it was the right thing to do? Did it end up being the right call?
Oh I know the feeling – the gut feeling
Even as this very prompt , I am reading
So often as my heart and head debate
I can feel the logic and reason abate.
As my thoughts do battle and I trust my instinct
As a doctor, a science student this must be extinct.
I know this and yet I can possibly never comprehend
Why my gut feeling leads me to many a “logical” end!!
A contradiction, well isn’t life itself often one?
Have we mastered the mysteries , has anyone?
Many a time it is that my heart is the real winner
As my poor head and logic is the well fought loser!
No regrets – I have often gone where angels fear to tread
No lifebuoys, no cushions yet I do not land on my head.
And for that, grateful I always am and always will be
On that note , I say Adios ! Let me be the Illogical logical me !!
