Roller Coaster Ride - Poem by Deidre Dixon

I love riding on roller coasters; they give me a wonderful thrill
From the anticipation of the first dropp to the shock of going up the first hill
I love the way it takes off slowly then picks up speed as it moves towards the edge
As I look below at the park I’m in feeling like I’m about to go over a ledge
It’s funny how something so scary it makes you scream can give you such a powerful rush
It’s also funny how a roller coaster ride resembles relationships so much
Though there’s a close resemblance in a roller coaster ride and a relationship between two
The rifts in a relationship don’t cause the same thrill, but will frustrate the hell out of you
Every relationship has its ups and downs and takes many turns and twists
They will cause you to scream just like you’re on a roller coaster ride, only in the end you’re pissed
Don’t get me wrong, relationships can be great too and they certainly can be lots of fun
You meet someone you are attracted to, get to know them and hopefully, the two will become one
Nowadays with AIDS and STDs on the rise, not to mention the crazy people you meet where someone will end up hurt
Most people prefer to be in a committed relationship with someone who, though not perfect, they have good values and character with which you can work
You might have a few peeks and valleys in your relationship just like on a roller coaster ride
But just like on a roller coaster, it would be safer to stay on until it is finished before you exit from your side
Just remember while you’re in your relationship that unless there is something gravely wrong you should stick it out through the good and the bad
‘Cause just like on a roller coaster ride it might scare you at times, but in the end you’ll know what a great time you really had

    A lot of wisdom tucked in there. At some point, we all begin to realize life is a bit of a roller coaster rides and relationships are the biggest roller coaster of all. (Report)Reply
