Balance is the key to all things

Tightrope Walk

by Jessica Wheeler


The winds of trepidation blow

Threaten to throw

Choose not one side
Maintain your stride

Concern not only what you please
An ego's breeze
Grows if allowed
See through its cloud

Steady the tightrope walk each day
Lean with that sway
With balance, find
Your peace of mind
