Roller Coaster

Wow. I haven't written in a very long time. I should probably fix that. There's so much going on in my life right now...it's a roller coaster ride.

Up.      Down.
     All Around---It's a roller coaster ride.
To and fro...
     Ain't it so?
     The heartache I feel inside?
          It's crashing and falling,
          Turning and burning,
          But...in order to fall
               You must RISE.
     So rise;
          Soar above the ashes.
          Be one with the clouds
          And try your very hardest
          To never
          come down.
     Because, if you're crazy,
          (sort of like me)
     You'll fall fast, and you'll fall hard.
          Once upon a time-
     You fell too soon.
          Too fast.
          Too deep.
          Too wonderfully--
     For when you take the plunge,
          It's cold.
               Cold, unknown, and crazy.
          As you fall, you realize...
     Falling's half the fun.
          The fear of a bitter crash is ever near,
          But if you don't face that,
     Know that--
          You'll never feel it.
     That exhilarating, breath-taking moment of free fall.
     Just you, yourself, and the air.
Life is a roller coaster.
     It has highs...
          It has lows.
          But one thing is for sure;
     If you never took that first leap of faith-
  Who would you be today?
