Not quite to the left and not quite to the right
I try to stay in the middle but it’s a constant fight
A never ending struggle to find the balance in life
And I wonder if someday I will finish my strife

Maybe a perpetual equilibrium is something I can achieve
but so far I have found that balance is something brief
something that is beautiful but quick to escape my grip
Because it doesn’t matter how much I focus, sooner or later I slip
all it takes is one wrong step or even one wrong thought
For me to lose the balance that for long I have sought

So what’s the point of looking for balance if I seem to be destined to fail?
because I can’t equal the forces at the opposite sides of the scale
and I often can’t figure out what is the cause of these forces
since a disequilibrium can come from so many different sources

It could be that I am drinking too much soda or maybe too much rum
or maybe I am spending more money than I’m earning in my income
Perhaps I am not exercising my body as much as I am exercising my mind
or maybe there is a balance between either following logic or emotions that I must find

Whatever it is I have made my purpose to find said balance even if it’s in vain
because I believe that from this never ending struggle there’s some wisdom to gain
which might be that the components of life are never just black and white
there is always a gray area, a middle path that can easily escape our sight

But to find it and to walk it is a delight.
so to say that it has all been in vain is simply not true
because now I’ve learn that there’s a middle path I must try to walk through
A middle point between helping others but not letting them take advantage of me
between the things I have to control and the things that I have to let be

I also ought to know when to be serious and when to be crazy
to know when is okay to relax and at what point I am just being lazy
I know there’s a balance between the things I want to do and the things I have to do
between being a in a relationship but being an individual too

All of these things I want to learn how to balance one day
and even if that day never comes I know I would learn some things along the way

All the relevant information is in the title, Come join us and I hope you liked this little poem about balance!
