Life İn A Circus


What does life and juggling have that economics 101 doesn't have?

In life like in juggling,
You can never say 'all things being equal...'
Everything and every ball is at stake AT THE SAME TIME..
Everything changes simultaneously...

The ball in your hand is soon thrown in the air,
Quicker than it takes you to feel cozy with it
And get some sense of being in control from the brief moment you held it.

The dropping or falling of one ball will attract ooohs and aaahs..
Focusing on the dropped or fallen ball takes you away
From the 4 that are still in the air..
Priority! Priority!

You have failed one, not all five...
In some cases its a game of averages,
Elsewhere it's drop one fail all..
But in reality, its life not a game

Then you suddenly realize
That even at the circus there's a lesson to learn,
Life to be lived,
Breath to be drawn.
