Like an Amusement Park

You roll, you fly, you spin, you try

Like a rollercoaster

Time spins and twirls

If you survive it

You’ve sure earned a pearl

Like the flying saucer,

It swirls really fast

You feel sick

But you want it to last

Like the merry-go-round

It takes you to the top

The world seems beautiful

But soon it’s time to swap

Like the free fall

You wait for the time

To be dropped from above

You pay a dime

Like the pirate ship

You start your life slow

You should know when to stop

Or your mind it will blow

Like the ghost train

You see the dark side of life

Enjoy it while you can

Coz soon there will be light

Like the Frisbee

You go forth and back

The rides over soon

And then you’re back on track

Like the electric chair

You bump into rides

Take some time to slack

And choose a side

Life’s an amusement park,

Try all the rides,

Scary as it may seem,

Just take the flight.

I was amazed at the comparison two. Soon you'll be seeing part two of the amusement park vs life

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 01, 2019:

Nice symbolism using rides at a fair to compare to the ups and downs of living life.

Good write.

Life can certainly be a bit of a roller coaster ride and I love the way your poem explores this. Great writing.
