Balance in Life

Darkness fades. Souls awake. It’s light out. 
The birds sing.
The menu today: to allocate each moment for goodness.
I slot in the spirit, exercise and gratitude first.
Later, self-punishment of energy only to balance the books. Whatever it takes.
The hours roll.
Where’s the creative in the day?
Have we had any culture?
What about compassion? A helping hand. To a stranger. To the unknown.
Dreams flirt with the mind. If we could do anything, what would you do?
The belly fills.
Later the evening news.
Environmental toxins pollute us. Digitally and in the air. What we drink.
Yet humanity moves. The evening soon dawns.
I ask myself today.
Is there balance in life?
