roller-coaster ride

up hills, down dales we go
turning, twisting side-to-side
life’s pathway’s sometimes like
a roller-coaster ride

my breath is snatched away
as
we
swish
downhill
i shriek in joy and fear
from terror laced with thrill

up hills down dales we go
turning, twisting side-to-side
life’s pathway’s sometimes like
a roller-coaster ride

my hair streams out behind
roots clinging to my head
icy air zips past
my nose turns tingle red

up hills down dales we go
turning, twisting side-to-side
life’s pathway’s sometimes like
a roller-coaster ride

slope
upward
the
plod
we
labouring with strain
is the effort really worth it?
we’ll just slip back again

up hills down dales we go
turning, twisting side-to-side
life’s pathway’s sometimes just
a roller-coaster ride

we’re poised on top a moment
with the world stretched out below
then gravity takes over . . . and
hurtling
down
we
go!
