Balance

Take a moment and think

When was the last time you just let go?

Didn’t run

Didn’t push

Didn’t worry, worry, worry

Just ran about

Laughed out loud

Swung your arms like a child?

There are times when you need to be serious

Keep control of your thoughts and emotions

There are times when you need the opposite

Speak what’s on your mind

Let your heart run wild

Both sides need their turn and time.

There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.

–Dr. Who

    This poem challenged me. I am overly cautious and “secured” at ALL times. Glad I stumbled upon this piece.

    I think being free like a child is essential to being happy. If only we weren’t so judgmental of other adults, we’d all be a little less tight-laced.
