       What's a heart to do?

     Alas, to know what to do,
         in matter's of the heart
     so many feelings to consider
         it's not easy to start
     To know the best thing to do,
         hope that I'm sincere,
     To know the right thing to do,
         of that I'm unclear
     To know the safest thing to do,
         if there's feelings to spare
     To know the easiest thing to do,
         so you know that I care
     Ah, forget all this,
         it's easy now to see
     It's the Loving thing to do,
         for a heart to soar free.

Danny-

I was fascinated with this.
I couldn't help but notice
two distinct poems entwined here.
By reading all of the odd-numbered
lines it flows as a complete poem.
Then reading the even-numbered lines
I got an equally complete poem.

Is this something you planned?
If so, I'm not familiar with the form,
but you have inspired me.

Very intriguing.

Thanks to those who who shared their comments.  
Yes, Marge, I wanted to reflect my indecision, so I altered the tone of the peom.  Wasn't sure it would work, but the message was there.  Glad you noticed.
Thanks for the response.

I too, noticed the interchanging...and found it quite refreshing, and that it added much to your poem.  Very well done!    

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
