balancing on the teeter-totter
with friends on the playground,
up and down we'd go,
if your friend jumped off
while your feet dangled in the air
you came crashing to the ground.
Life is the perpetual quest
perhaps impossible to find.
to eat a balanced diet,
find a balance in our exercise routine.
our work and our family,
for ways to
is balance really what we need?
Weren't the best accomplishments
when you were out of balance a bit,
when you put everything
landed on the ground,
got back up to ride again?
