Tumbling - Poem by Bobbi Myers

I've paid a price, more times than not
Through life, my cost was high

From bottoms up, then down I fought
At times, too tired to try

Why do I slide on down this hill?
One way is all it goes

You'd think I'd learned my lesson now
Yet, down is all I know

Just to climb up, I'm fighting still
Yet, I can't see the crest

Just as I reach the top I feel
One rock falls, then the rest

Why must I rise to fall once more?
You'd think by now I'd know

Instead of peaking at the top
Rock I go!
