A rollercoaster
twists and turns
unique experiences--
for some, the ride is smooth,
for others, rough
the bright red rollercoaster rises
one hundred feet to the top
where people feel
on top
of the world
little by little, the rollercoaster creeps up the tracks
slowly, heartbeats drum
car by car, the rollercoaster accelerates
the colossal downfall yonder
each person- helpless, powerless, weak
inverted at times
but the rollercoaster flattens out again
some abandon the ride
Despite this, the ride continues on its journey
A journey that rises to the top
And drops
Again and again.
