Off Balance

Written by: ilene bauer

There are days it seems I have
Too much upon my plate.
Whether this is good or not
Is up for some debate.

On the plus side, it feels fine
To hustle and keep busy;
But the negative is that
I’m often in a tizzy.

Running ‘round with chores to do
And friends to meet is great.
Sometimes with so many plans
It’s hard to keep them straight.

Other times, though, when I check,
My calendar is bare.
Then I wonder why it is
I’ve so much time to spare.

It’s rare, in life, to balance
Purpose, flow and relaxation,
Unless you’ve left it all behind
And gone on a vacation!
