The Balance I Seek

What do I create in this life of mine?

But a myriad of experiences, in which to define

Trinkets to add to my portrait

Skills I can choose to refine


Where do I wish for my life to lead?

To desire paradise would be ideal, indeed.

A life only good, without bad

Would stray the path towards greed


The balance I seek is within sight

To attain it would make life bright

Appreciation to all that’s given

Would give darkness a sure light.

  1. This is such a poignant write, I especially love; “A life only good, without bad

    would stray the path towards greed.” Some deep wisdom in this .. moderation is key! ❤️
