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


Written for this last Friday’s Light and Shade Challenge.

Just a Choice

It’s not really cheating.

Just a nibble is all,

Nothing to be concerned about.

Why are you looking at me like that?

It’s not like I can’t stop before it gets too bad.

I am a grown person,

I don’t need your approval!

Stop looking at me like that!

There is nothing wrong with what I’m doing.

If you have a problem, then perhaps you should leave.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

‘I can do what I want.’

That’s what grown ups say, isn’t it?

So why do I feel like I’ve lost something?


Inspired by the picture prompt from today’s Light and Shade Challenge. This time, I stayed in the 100 word limit.
