Poem: Time for Balance

Time for Balance

History:
Humanity totters
stuck in hallway dimly lit;
startled, we bumped into one wall.
Overcompensating,
we bruised ourselves on the other.
If we must crawl, then crawl.
If we must find a rail to hold, then find it.
But we must balance ourselves eventually
to stand
and to move forward
towards whatever destination
was our original intent.

One thought on “Poem: Time for Balance

  1. my favorite line: “if we must crawl / then crawl
    if we must find a rail to hold, then find it”

    I’m crawling right now, and on my way out of a dark hall, so this
    line really helped me. Why do we beat our beautiful selves up when
    we find ourselves crawling? We are valiant Spirits….
