A BALANCING ACT

 

Torn between two lives.

Between what you want

And what others want of you.

A tough balancing act.

Full of uncertainty.

How do you walk the fine line?

Can you please everyone?

No.

You can’t.

You must please yourself first.

Balance carefully.

And balance wisely.

A BALANCING ACT

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.

HIS PLACE

The sun begins to set.

There are scurrying sounds

as the animals prepare for the night.

But the old elephant stands in his place.

He doesn’t need to move.

He has everything he needs

right in front of him.

He keeps a watchful eye

on the other animals.

But he stands in his place.
