Follow Your Heart. ~ Karen Nourizadeh

If ever you wander,

Searching for home,

No need to look far.

Whether you’ve strayed

 Or you’ve roamed,

Seek courage, look inside.

You may be surprised to find,

There’s a crowd in your head,

That crowd can be

 Oh so loud, so unkind.

With no right to be there,

This home is yours to master,

Kick them all out

On their keesters,

Right onto their arses.

They’ve overstayed their welcome,

You are not their keeper.

Once they’ve gone from your home,

You can delve into your Self

Much deeper.

Find silence, be alone

Then, ne’er are you far

You hold the key

To the voice that

 Lives in your heart.

    Unleash its wings

Let it be free

Hear its song

Lose the key.

Become master, not captive

Of mind and home,

Cast aside worry and fear as

With the love in your heart,

Ne’er is your home alone.
