Ambitious desires chained,
so balance can be had,
in harmony, life is lived,
or so that’s what is purposed.
The golden mean,
not too hot, not too cold,
harmonizing the ebb and flow of life,
and thus, you may find peace and happiness.
But there is a pull to go over,
to commit yourself to one thing, fully
surrender to the disharmony,
to look at the edge and knowingly step over,
peace and happiness may lack,
but life is experienced, vividly,
the ebb and flow of good and bad,
open to high passions of pain and pleasure,
higher the threshold of pain, equally higher the pleasure,
instead of the mild which comes with balance,
so, the aim changes,
from the mean to the extreme,
balance a thought for later life.
