Balance Your Life
by Rob Littler
A man’s eyes reveal nothing
When no one is looking—and when
They are—when the truth that absorbs the sweat
Above the brow, is wiped in silence.
A man’s heart reveals everything, when
The pace is pulsed into the ground
Through his heels, letting the sky
See what his sadness reveals—
That a whole lifetime of chatter
Chatters. That voices do carry,
But carry no significance. It is the dance,
The stance one supposes that makes
Truth a difficult drink to imbibe—
Even when his eyes do consume
More than a stomach can ever hope to disperse.

Much truth and wisdome here. I like also how this works on personal and universal levels. Especially like the ring of this part: That a whole lifetime of chatter

I have lived and am living this ode. I can clearly empathize with each and every word that you offer up as nothing less than revelatory to the portion of me as yet human and persisting.

"Truth a difficult drink to imbibe" - Wow! what a line. This in itself could be the title of a poem. Do you mind if I steal it? Thanks Rob.
