Do we make life or does life make us? We cannot control life, but yet life can control us. To life, we are nothing but a lost toddler at an amusement park. At first glance we look around and see far too much to comprehend. All we feel are emotions, we cry, we laugh, and we love. But yet, deep within us is the feeling of being overwhelmed. That feeling also has another name, it's called learning, and it is overwhelming...


The author's comments:
It is hard for me to learn, I have always had trouble learning things like Geometry, Algebra and so forth. I guess what really inspired me to write this was when my parent took me, my sister and her two best friends to Six Flags. I looked around and it was quite hard to navigate our way around. I started to find myself overwhelmed and I remembered my sophmore and junior years in math durring high school. At that one moment, when I was supposed to be having fun, I felt everything I had felt before.

A beautiful poem that touches something inside each of us. No matter how old we are, there are times when uncertainty and the unknown overtake us. Thank you for this verse.

Truly amazing; made me ask myself many questions. Very thought-provoking. You are quite intelligent ! I'm glad to find that I'm not the only one who feels this way at some points in my life.
