A Very Long Time

Twin fools:

My mind and my heart.

My mind doubts everything and everyone.

My heart believes everything and everyone.

My Lord, are they not equally sick?

“No, My child,

The sickness of your heart,

I shall be able to cure

Before long.

But to cure your mind,

I am afraid,

Will take a very, very, very

Long time.”
