"You're next up"

And ultimately the inevitable reality of what's to come fills your head.

You're next up on life's rollercoaster ride,
but you don't know what lays ahead.
You hear the laughter,
and shouts,
but you don't see it yet.
You don't know what it's about.
Instead of enjoying the wait -
you stand there,
guessing your fate.

But now it's your time.

"Sit tight"

"Keep your arms and feet inside the ride at all times"

So you buckle in -
Not quite ready,
and as the ride takes off,
you sit back steady.
You laugh as you go up & down,
side & around.
The exhilaration of moving at such speeds,
seem to be all you really need.

But then you **** too hard -
Arms and legs nearly flailing outside the ride.
You begin to feel scared,
but you have too much pride.

Then you drop down 400 feet,
the only thing the leaves your body is a deafening scream.
And uncertainty of your willpower to finish this ride set in.

You didn't know you would feel so scared,
when you chose to begin.
And just as you calm down,
another drop happens,
making you wish you'd  hit the ground,
just to escape this rollercoaster ride.
Because buckled in,
there is nowhere to hide.
You wait for it to get better,
but it only gets worse.
You start crying and seeing visions of a hearse.
You see one last loop ahead,
wondering if this is when you'll be pronounced dead.

But you make it through,
upside down and all,
only seeing good things ahead -
so now you're glad you didn't fall.

The rest of the ride is smooth sailing,
no drops,
no arms flailing.
Just the wonders of life taking you to new heights,
but you're no longer scared.
You've been through all the terrors & frights.

So when it's all over,
said & done,
you can look back at the rollercoaster.
With pride now,
instead of fear,
encouraging the young who dare to travel near.

Come with me, my friend
Come ride with me
Through the uphill of wonder
Down the downhill of doubt
Come on, don't stop now
We have so much farther to travel
Don't give up now
We'll go up the blissful twist of friends
Bravely make it through the loop of love
What are you waiting for?
Oh no, this downhill will be hard to bear
But we'll make it through
Come on, are you ready?
Did you ever think life was to be like this?
A never ending roller coaster going at high speed?
No? Me either.

If I'm on a roller coaster going to ****, I'm glad I get to experience it with you.

Life is like a roller coaster,
So unpredictable.
Sometimes things come suddenly,
And it’s like a big jump.
But, then you have to adjust,
And sometimes it takes time.
Just like a roller coaster,
It takes you a second to feel yourself again.
The joy of life though,
is its ride.
Just live your life,
and enjoy it.

Do you ever feel like you’re in a dream
Forever riding on a roller coaster
Slowly, very slowly, going up and up
Until you’ve gone so very high
Fingers touching clouds in a blue sky
Then down you come so very fast
The future has now become the past
If so, just know you’re not crazy
You’re at life’s carnival having a blast!

Loving you,
Is like the sun burning into the horizon
The flicker of a lighted match
A roaring gust a wind
only waiting to push us over
And a color shown as pure
as a puff of smoke
We're nothing as an intertwine
But mangled souls in opposite directions
Loving you,
When we meet eye to eye
All we see
Are roller coasters
On an endless journey
To a place where we never fell
Where the rollercoaster leads
We find ourselves
Never truly loving each other.

I have never known more fear than I have felt on a roller-coaster
The fear of being up so high and the possibility of crashing down

If this is what love is like then I don't know if I want it
Feeling unknown by most people
yet so similar to most other feelings.
It's like a ground floor rollercoaster.
I ride the rollercoaster looking out.
Doppelganger looking in from the sidelines.
Two worlds in one heart, one soul, one mind.
Looking out at the world passing you by
while experiencing it all at once.

I experience every emotion like any other.
The emotions come and go with each day and every experience,
but this one never seems to fade.
I prevail, though.
Whether emotions are high or low, left or right, my depression is still there.
It criticizes everything I do,
crippling my mind, soul and heart.

It shan't defeat me, though.
It's like the best friend I never asked for.
Supporting me in the ways it tries to break me down.
Motivating me on the better days.
Pushing me on the harder days because I know I've had worse.
I have learned to live with this new extremity.
One day it may detach itself and if, or whenever, that day shall come I will celebrate.
If that day does not come then I still shall take great strides in my life to be a success because this "best friend" of mine will not make me fail.

the word for not changing is
and the word for constant change is chaos
and the word for swinging wildly between the two is
