in the day to day

i heard it said once 

that we are a mixture of dark and light

that what matters is the choice we make

in any given moment

and it’s a careful balance 

day by day

to walk this line

where at any given time 

we could falter

but i like to think that

even from mistakes

we can learn

and even when we fail

there is the promise of recovery

and that in retaining 

the memory 

the intention 

we have the capacity 

to do tremendous good

and sometimes

in some small way

we do that

and people support us

and sometimes

we reveal where we are afraid

and people help us 

they say it’s okay

they say this because they believe in us

and they see the goodness 

that comes from an open heart

and those are the people

i’m glad to have by my side

in the day to day
