Torn between two lives.

What you want.

And what others want of you.

A tough balancing act.

Full of uncertainty.

How to keep balance?

How to walk the fine line?

Do you cut yourself into half

like in the tale of Solomon?

Can you please everyone?

No. You can’t.

You must please yourself first.

Then you can solve the rest of

the world’s problems.

Balance carefully.

And balance wisely.

    What a thought provoking well written poem. My biggest weakness wright now is that for me others always come before myself. It would be good to once in while allow for some me time I guess.

    I did that my whole life. Now I have the time to let myself come first. Unless my daughter calls from college with a problem. But I wrote a book. I should have done this sooner.
