Weights and Measures
One who is super sensitive
Seems to believe that the heart
Is indeed a magnifying glass
Those who deny that intuitive
Realm, may claim the heart is
Just a tool to be used
How can humanity address
both beliefs and thrive?
Can there be a happy medium?
“There are no little events with the heart.
It magnifies everything; it places in the same scales
the fall of an empire of fourteen years and the
dropping of a woman’s glove, and almost always
the glove weighs more than the empire”
-Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850)
