The Conflict

a poem by Ibitomilade Adejuyigbe

My heart is younger than my age
Its too trusting and believing
Easy to love and easy to hurt and
It bothers me

My mind is years above my age
Weighed down with worries and countless thoughts
Many of this I can’t resolve and
It bothers me

My heart and mind are ages apart
The conflict within worries my soul
No matter how hard I try
I never seem to have it on hold and
It bothers me
