Reflection On Effort

Where am I?

Where do I want to be?

Is more effort needed?

An assessment
may create more questions,
in an upside-down world
where the normal order
is reversed.

Effort is good,
but too much is bad.
Can the key to life
be knowing how much effort
is enough?

“The more I try to stay
on top of water
the more I sink,
but when I try to sink,
I float.”
