The Golden Scales

I’m not the kind to fidget, fray or fret.
I’m truly a soul at peace – ask anyone!
The savoir faire for which I’m widely known
has optimised my odds in life’s roulette.

Am I the underdog to back? You bet!
With equal yin and yang, in union,
I have a personal hotline to the Zone.
I relish risk, I rise to every threat.

I’ve had my share of darkness: when light fails,
the surest step can miss the track. And yet
there dawns within me now a marvellous sun

whose rays enflame a pair of golden scales:
a perfect equilibrium of regret –
for all I’ve done and all I haven’t done.
