I would follow the heart

and if your heart tells you
that this is what you must do
my advice
is always to listen to that heart
because it will teach you
what you must learn
and out of that education
you might become
a better
human being

and if your heart tells you
that you must speak
when really
it would be safer
for you to keep silent
I would follow the heart
I would say what is inside you
and defend those 
who have no voice in our society
speak oh speak


and if your heart tells you
that a man with blue eyes
is yours
that you must pursue him
this must become your history
for sometimes
the man won't recognise
his destiny 
to say the words that are required
(always be the first to say the words of love)


and if your heart tells you
that you must have children
hold these children as the most important
of all your successes
for the soul is only shaped by sacrifice
the more you give up of yourself
the more the soul widens
once the children arrive   believe in them completely


and if your heart tells you
that the world's successes
are less important
than the bonds of the family
trust the heart
in its simple words
for when we die
we are all successful finally in our placements
and no one will be superior in the gravesite family
