Roller Coaster

 

There is no peace.

There is no calm.

There is no equanimity.

The feeling of balance

is just

the cresting of the

parabola.

Up and down.

The violent waves.

When you are small enough

you barely feel them moving.

We shed tears

as our world changes.

Faced with our temporary nature,

we think we barely

have the time to learn,

but we already know

and that knowledge scares us

even more.

Faced with an ascent,

descent,

the high frequency.

Something violent

and life changing.

We hold our breath,

and close our eyes,

and pray,

instead of taking in

our destiny.
