Life is Like a Carnival


A day at the carnival is filled with lots of joys & thrills,
It's similiar in life; as we sometimes endure fun & then sometimes spills;
Where we can be riding so high one day, like being atop a big ferris wheel,
With the wind blowing in our hair & no worries do we feel,
Then the next day our troubles will simply throw us down to the ground;
And just when we're riding the highest- is when the ride decides to slow down much like the merry-go-round;
Then there 's the rush we get from a roller coaster ride;
That takes our very breath away, leaving no place for our fears to hide;
While the wild & whipping tit-a-whirl will excite & toss us to & fro,
But we'll ride & ride it over again; since we love it so,
Life's many problems will carry our emotions on to varying degrees of the dance;
And much like these carnival rides we're still willing to take that chance,
We may adopt many risks along the way, that may cuase us to take a dive,
But we'll find it was all worthwhile to truly feel alive.

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
