Rollercoaster of Loss...
This life I live keeps going on
Locked in this seat I ride upon
The Rollercoaster my life's become
At times all "feels", then total numb
Keep people out - let people in
Just waiting for next ride to begin
Going up and down, and all around
At times, feel headed into ground
Crashing deep, and tossed about
Still locked in, cannot get out
Feel bloodied and beaten, but persevere
Not all who come, survive it, here
Rollercoaster of Loss, not for faint of heart
There is NO ticket, no "time to start"
It comes upon, from who knows where
Only way is through - from "here" to "there"
Sometimes, it pauses; hanging upside down
You cry and scream; feel no one around
It starts again; wondering where "there" is?
Will YOU survive that pain when hits?
As you ride along, your neck is whipped
Body feels broken; continue to sit
In this seat - will this ride NEVER end
Or am I destined just to spend
The rest of my time on this particular ride
With only my pain filling up the inside?
I don't believe that's my destiny
That someday, hopefully soon, I'll be free
Of this pain that consumes my every thought
If this is "it", I'd rather not!!!
