The Rollercoaster

Stephen Chinnock

29 September 2020

Oh how I have been
on that Rollercoaster of life
we all know so well
rising to happy heights
plunging down again
to the gritty pits
of current realities

Always strapped in
our own little cage
tightly supported
by the seat belts of life
holding us tight
in the dizziness
of that crazy ride

The belts of security
are love, generosity
compassion for others
and genuine friendship

At the end of the bumpy ride
I find I can pick myself up
bruised and hurt
a common condition
but ready to begin again!
