Rollercoaster - Poem by Jan Elemans

Life is a rollercoaster,
A guarantee for a bumpy ride,
Once it starts rolling,
There is no way you can hide.

At times,
It will go up steep,
At times
It will plunge down deep.

In places,
You will laugh out loud,
In places,
You will cry and shout.

No matter how high the rise,
No matter how deep the fall,
After a given period of time,
There is an end to it all.

You’ll be back at the same level,
Where life’s ride took off.
Once again you’re frail and vulnerable,
Only surrounded by unconditional love.
