Solution by John Michael.


We all need to satisfy
A balancing act
To avoid harming
Our time and resources are balancing
Between night and day
The whole life long it’s the norm
Balancing through heart and soul
Between good and bad
Between anything and anybody
Leaning left and right
Trying not to fall
