Roller Coaster

By: Matthew Lippe

Life has been a roller coaster,
it’s had missing tracks,
and breakdowns,
and plenty of bumps,
but I don’t stop.
I don’t stop in the middle of the ride,
even though there might be a downfall.
But I’m not saying there hasn’t been high places,
but just be ready for a fall.
For I can’t be at the top forever.
Dark turns will occur,
where there is no light at all,
but soon I will be out again,
climbing another hill.
Soon I will be at the top again,
but might go through a loop back to the bottom.
But remember this,
life will keep a rolling,
even through the ups,
and the downs.
