balance

a sudden drop
in confidence
the slightest gust
may tip the scale
and balance may be lost

the fragile faith
of self-belief
so easily
it can be lost
and slip away again

  1. Ah but don’t let it Snue-Blue. And balance is so over-rated, mostly because it doesn’t exist. It’s the pitching of the ship that makes us sail to better places. I’d have a drink with you on the subject if it were possible. I think you’d be cool to have a drink with. But you’d have to do some spontaneous poetry, I’m afraid, so be warned.

  2. aha, now let me return some of those hugs you sent me … here they are, just touch the ‘H’ on your keyboard and I’ll set it up that you receive a wide, accept-all hug from me
