Ferris Wheel Ride   (Prompt#7)

Ferris wheel at sunset Pictures, Images and Photos

A giddy, exciting, exhilarating, feeling
Thrilling emotions
Thoughts racing wild
Security bar latched and locked
Both hands gripping and holding on tight
Going up off the ground
Higher and higher
Way up into thin air
Round and round it goes
Where and when it stops, no one knows
As the wheel spins
The world turns
Reaching the top
Life is like a Ferris wheel
Highs and lows
Ups and downs
Some days shades of gray drifting clouds
Some days brilliant blue skies
Life is like a Ferris wheel
Revolving around sunrises and sunsets
What goes up must come down
The Ferris wheel ride must come to an end
Looking down from the top
Everyone looks so small
Back down on the ground
You're just another small person
Joining the crowd of small people
