The most important element with which I want to live

The one thing that proves to be painfully elusive

That is hard to achieve, and harder to maintain

Once achieved- I lose it again and again..

I long for, actively seek, strive to find

Balance in my life, for peace of my mind

Balance between work and home responsibilities

Between challenging myself and feeling at ease

Between strenuous activity and complete rest

Between old hobbies and new interests

Indulgence and austerity, experienced in equal measure

Emotional discomfort offset by pursuit of pleasure..

To be stoic enough to get through a catastrophic event

To embrace Epicurean delights when opportunities present..


Each moment of life cannot be perfectly balanced, I know

Over a time-space continuum, in a balanced way I should grow

So when I start drifting towards extremes in any domain

I pull myself towards the center, towards balance again
