Difficult Balance

by Cheryl Merrick

Trying to maintain my balance between

The drive to accomplish
and the need to relax

The compulsion to complete tasks
and the longing for intuitive impulses

The aversion to routine
and the attraction of order

The struggle with details
and the yearning for completeness

The need for structure
and the desire for inspiration

The necessity of dealing with daily details
and the compelling pull of spiritual priorities

The necessity to move
and the urgency to rest

The requirement for action
and the indispensability of reflection

The desire to be with people
and the hunger to be alone with myself

The inclination to give
and the essentialness of replenishment;

I listen to the Spirit,
and attempt to find my difficult balance
