Roller Coaster Life

I am

We are

Strapped in

Buckled down

No control

No escape

Scream

Vomit

Invoke

In vein

In vain

Passengers

Pawns

Puppets

Reluctant Riders.

We can do this

We chant on our way up.

We bask

At the top

High on hope

Summit Smiling

Suspended

Motionless

We whimper as we plummet

Cry out to deaf ears

Tremble and weep

Depths with no light.

The end of the track

Nowhere in sight

Strapped in

Buckled down

Not in control

Breathe in

Calm down

Let it out

Bend into the curve

Twist

Turn

Embrace

Moving forward

We

are

Moving

Forward.

Hold on

To

Love.

Life.

Each other.

For as long

As we need

For as long

As we must

Stay the distance

No light

No tunnel

No sign of getting off.

We can do this

We chant on our way up….

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
