Frustration lines the periphery of life,
like flames taunting the balances we adhere,
yet imbalance introduces change,
and change we must in the ebbs and flows of life,
frustrations often the stance of motivation
yearning for movement.
Acceptance the key to movement,
the defining thoughts that admit limits,
and beyond that change to remedy the imbalance,
unwilling to uphold the past in favor
of less stressful hindrance,
a life committed to flow.
The point of change comes at crisis,
when no longer are we willing to accept circumstance,
and that decision is the first step in movement,
indignation and steadfastness our shield
against the favor of stagnation,
so often chosen out of fear.
Why do we wait so long,
until change is pleaded, walls cracking
and world bent into shapes unwarranted,
yet fear holds us too tightly
and change itself an ominous undertaking,
often so feared as to chose inaction as relevant?
Frustration is then a red flag for change,
its necessity a plea and the circumstance apparent,
and in ignoring it, we create further imbalance,
as a rolling stone gathers moss,
so in recognition tis astute to cast fear aside and adjust,
to quell the stress and join the flow in life.
