i’m simultaneously surrounded
by the good i enjoy
and all that i despise
life is a constant shifting of emotions
to achieve balance between distaste and harmony
looking for homeostasis
i hope i manage it
it gets difficult some days
at times, yin yang forces me
beyond my capabilities of juggling
then i struggle to keep both sides
from crashing into me
Light, I see it as a metaphor for goodness – finding it, feeling it, and following it – isn’t that what we desire for our lives? If not, what is life then but dimmed?
Light and Darkness by Sadje
Give me light
I am lost in dark
Show me the right path
adaptation by Joseph A. Pinto
i’ve grown used to
a mind gone closed;
i’ve gone numb to
a heart grown cold.
writing – poetry, fiction, submissions, books, emails
finances – taxes, banking, statements, payments
cleaning – kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, office
laundry – sheets, clothes, towels
eating – healthful, decadent
drinking – water, medicinals, booze
reading – books, ebooks, blogs, notices, email, mail, subtitles
thinking – rehashing, exploring, daydreaming, planning, goals
exercise – for back, for TMJ, for shoulder, for heart
you’d think i wouldn’t get enough sleep, free time or get showered at all!
but you’d be wrong
wisdom has graced me
a found peace
in the tumultuous
emerged from within
now standing alone
or in a crowd
becomes natural and easy
living at my pace
doing what satisfies
enjoying the results
a balance has been struck
Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Legend
of good and
evil goes on
until forever, creating legends.
there’s always something
out of whack
and we must
adapt to it
lest we succumb
it’s a waiting game
the next thing
out of kilter again
balance is really
and less pain
I’m simultaneously surrounded by the good I enjoy and all that I despise.
Life is a constant shifting of emotions to achieve balance between distaste and harmony.
Looking for homeostasis. I hope I manage it.
It gets difficult some days.
At times, Yin Yang forces me beyond my capabilities of juggling.
I’m struggling with strength to keep both sides from crashing into me today.
