UPS AND DOWNS

Written by: Donn Ronquillo

you take the good, 
in whatever mood.
you take the bad,
even if it makes you sad.
you take the ups,
even if you're all wrapped up.
you take the downs,
no matter all the frowns.
you take the world for what it is!
no matter what it gives you,
cause you know better!
no matter what you'd been through!
so many hard changes and challenges;
so many struggles,
so many choices to make,
keeping up with the times,
cause you know what at stakes.
a cycle of bad lies:
through the illusion of no easy content,
trying to be real with no fake intent.
