Good Days and Bad Days: Striking That Elusive Balance

By No Comments1 min read
a couple holding each other s hands


it was drummed into me
that knowledge is the key –
pursue it if you want to be

then serenity will grace
your life. your demeanor solid,
bright face smiling
the body energized,

happy, continually until –
one falls asleep.
the next day

snug under the duvet
the sun breaks in
and the phone rings out
in the living room.

a member of the family?
the children? a neighbor
or the stranger yesterday
i met in the street?

knowledge i chased
to the end of the seas
and returned like a baby
sliding down the womb –

i knew almost nothing
in fact was helpless
without your support –
and the phone rings out.
