Up & Down - Poem by William K Duncan

I've been strong and I've been weak
I've felt love and I've felt it break

I've thanked myself, right from the heart
I've broken down, right from the start

I have a future, but I'm lost to the past
I've felt happiness, but it didn't last

I've been gone, and I've come home
I've had friends, and I've been alone

I've had victories won, and lost them all
Had my head up high, and taken a fall

I've dressed well, and I've worn rags
I've carried my life in few bags

I've wanted for nothing, and I've been desperate
Still while with all those around me,
I kept quiet

I've given much for nothing, and nothing for much
I've turned away, rather than touch...

Because I've been strong and I've been weak
I've felt love and I've felt heartache

I've thanked myself, right from the heart
And I've broken down, right from the start.
