Life is a story
with an endless spin,
an action park ride,
controlled from within.
One day you fly high,
the next day fall down,
while studying rules,
a merry go round

Fickle and dizzy
an unbalanced soul,
breaking the routine,
gaining self-control.
So many questions
await a response,
obtaining all needs,
still longing for wants.

The planet has changed,
nothing is the same,
words have new meanings,
unrelated aim.
Two steps moving forward
take one full step back,
slowly advancing,
remaining on track.

A visible light,
unfolds a strong bridge,
your soul forming wings,
your body the hinge.
Inhale then exhale
let go of the weight,
float calmly through life,
live what you create
