My Pendulum

The pendulum swings Side to side, one to the other You can apply many things to the arc Emotions, behaviours, actions, life I find examples often in me Like a hot flame, recoiling away from this So I experience one thing then seek an opposite Adjusting how I am, who I am, looking for balance Mostly finding extremes, learning not to Trying not to But it is hard, perhaps our journey is like this Day by day it does get easier The hill seems easier to climb And as I find a gentle place, upon the scale Another challenge arises to greet me And so my life continues Tracing my path on the swinging pendulum Jan 2022
