POEMS









Instincts and emotions are

so closely linked they’re on a par.

I treat them both as much the same

because they are, in all but name.


Instincts evolved from way back, when

survival was their purpose then.

As we moved on in time and space,

emotions seemed to take their place.


No doubt instincts have a function

to inspire without compunction.

They’ll dart right from our heart with ease

to start our fight or flight or freeze.


Emotions come both first and fast,

which leaves our thinking to be last.

When we do not think with speed,

emotions tend take the lead.


If we use instincts on their own

without cognition, it’s been shown,

there is a price that might be paid

for this is when mistakes are made.


But instincts and cognition can

link up together in a plan.

And I have seen and heard it said,

it’s this keeps us one step ahead.


When instincts mingle with our thought,

other concepts are then caught.

This is what we call emotion,

that can cause us all commotion.


So if a trauma comes along,

just trusting instincts may be wrong.

You need to stop to think things through,

before your instincts do for you.
