For those who long for balance

Balance is often not simply given
Balance is the work of work
If you wait for balance to beam down from above,
you could be waiting for a long time;
If you work for balance, sacrifice for it,
you will find it sooner

  1. Balance Haiku

    Balance comes within
    Outside is a weather vane
    Follow heart, not wind

  2. “Peace comes from within” is a better opening line—since balance is already in the title.
    I was composing too quickly. 🙂
