I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.
I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.
But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!
I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.
I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.
But it was High up there! It was high!
So since I'm still here livin',
I guess I will live on.
I could've died for love--
But for livin' I was born
Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry--
I'll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.
Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
I've been searching for this poem since I was a kid (early middle school) The fact that I remember it years later means something to me! This is great work!
I love this poem. It relates to the struggles in life that would make you want to do something drastic to take care of the problem then you relize that you are here for another purpose. You relize that things could be worst so with living Life is Fine.
made me smile..................................................
I like this poem alot and i tend to agree with amy. People dont always realize that things arent as bad as they seem and this poem iterates to the reader that life is worth living. Even if you are having a bad day, or fee that things arent going you way, it could always be alot worse. This is one of my favorite poems.
