I Study Alternatives

I study alternatives.

It is in the mind’s alternatives

That I get peace of mind.

It is in the heart’s alternatives

That I get abiding satisfaction.

The mind’s alternatives:

A doubtful night or a faithful day.

The heart’s alternatives:

A noiseful division or a soulful oneness.
