The balancing act, by Britta Benson

Bit of a fun poem about life, the daily balancing act, the impossible conundrum. Here goes.

The balancing act

I hold my breath, chest out, tummy in

on pointe in a ramshackle arabesque,

my arms flailing, ta-da!

I balance a heart, a head,

a pelvis rocking nonchalantly

like I mean it.

Grimace, smile,

this is life.

A gasp,

then panic strikes midnight,

just like that

and my game is up.

This, my friends,

looked so much easier in the video.
