in balance

consider this: a life of balance
can be hard to find

you under-stretch your muscles, and
you overtax your mind

you pile emotions up, until
the whole world’s out of kilter

you stream your consciousness at pace,
and find yourself bewildered

but such is equilibrium:
you know it when it’s there

although the days in balance be
occasional and rare

the times of our acceptance, when
our minds go past our speaking

i wish for you, my friend, that you
may find all that you’re seeking

the place where what is truly there
is all you need for feeding,

and you can slowly breathe the air
that your lungs have

been needing
