Life exists in the balance

The teetering of cosmic scale

One more breath to breathe in

After every breath exhaled


Every obvious good

Holds a little evil unseen

And life is much more grey

Found in the in-betweens


Let nature be your guide

To the impermanence

Mountains erode away

Deserts just seas, past tense


We must find our own paths

In a world that remains unstill

Not always the ease of down

Some parts will be uphill


This balance in our lives

Is what we should strive for

Leaning too far in one direction

Will only your fall assure

    Balance is everything. You are so right my friend. Nice work! Wishing you all the best!

  3. Very beautifully written, Brad. Balance is the most critical aspect of life, especially when change is a hard universal factor so that change can lead to an equilibrium shift. Still, in every respect, balance is needed to scale harmonised existence.

    So much truth in your words my friend. I love this stanza as I relate to the not always pleasant truth often found within.

    “Every obvious good
    Holds a little evil unseen

    but maybe it’s good to fall sometimes, as long as we get back up…

    When someone asks how my life is different in retirement, it always includes some referral to balance. My plan is to never get out of balance again. Probably won’t happen—but worth striving for.
