Vying of Wills

Do I give in, give up, or live on?

Does no one have the answers
To why we do what we do?

To what end is this disunity
In mind, body, and spirit
Leading us all?

Why do I believe one thing,
Know something else,
Act upon a third,
And feel another entirely?

Even recognized, it’s hard
To reconcile competing spirits
That fight for control of
My head, my heart, my hands
Who themselves have minds.
