Rollercoaster

*a year-end poem*

It started with a sky full of stars,
Fire cracking like those previous world wars,
People shouting at the top of their lungs,
Children dancing their beat to the songs;

I fastened my seatbelt, prepared for the motion,
Kept in mind every word of caution,
Closed my eyes, and opened it once more,
Soon we’re up, up above the floor;

Up and down and turning around,
Fast and slow like the playing sound,
Fearless now, down the ending ride,
You held my hand and never left my side.

Thank you for this rollercoaster year, 2015!
