Roller Coaster

This never-ending roller coaster makes life unpredictable, even to myself The ups and downs take me from high to low in a matter of minutes and hours Twists and loops send my mind into a whirlwind as it leaves my body numb Dark tunnels seem cold and lonely but I make it through in no time at all Things start to slow down and I think the ride is over only to speed past the exit Each time I pass, the scenery changes and new events take place, leaving me choices I least expect On occasion, the brakes come to a screeching halt but this is only for a second I then find myself no longer moving forward but riding in reverse, gripping my harness even tighter Eyes closed, my biggest fear is not the places I've never gone but the places I've already been
