Striving Balance in Life

Striving Balance in Life

Understanding the game…

For every cut and lash
exacted upon a soul,
there is an embrace, a consolation,
to soothe away the fears
and to restore a heart to whole.

For every word of disdain
spoken in reckless offence,
there is a wise word of compassion,
to find balance and understanding
in the circumstance.

The world is fused
in a balance enduring,
and without our consent or knowing
it finds kindness in all we suffer,
love within all the ensuing.

It is simply our choice
whether to recognize it,
to embrace the consolation
rather than blame the altercation
upon someone else.

Life is never vindictive
or in malice causes pain,
tis our own balance striving,
to know the lessons offered
and to stand strong in understanding, this game
we call life.

    Striving for balance is one of the secrets to a life fulfilled. You are so right, Tony – it is our choice. Making the right choices is much easier than many people think it is. Great work.
