balance

balance

i'm looking for it everywhere

.

.

.

something i'm in constant search of
something i try desperately to hold onto

...

somehow i feel that this could go on forever

.

.

.

dreams : reality

wants : needs

thoughts : actions

to speak : to remain quiet

stand up : back down

past : present

religious : spiritual
( yes, they are very different things)

like : dislike

acceptance : rejection

peace : chaos

right : wrong

sickness : health

personal time : family time

pleasing others : pleasing myself

being authentic : wearing the mask

.

.

.

i'm also wondering why it's just so darn hard to balance. why is it hard to be truly and deeply authentic? why is it so hard to know when you should speak up, when you should quietly dismiss? why is it so hard to reconcile wants and needs in today's world? when did the lines become so blurred between thoughts and actions, peace and chaos, religion and true spirituality, dreams and reality? why do i find so much underlying hate and hipocracy in places where it shouldn't be?


balance.


it's a really, really hard thing to find and even harder to hold onto.
