The Roller Coaster of Life (poem)

Journal of an Indonesian College Student

Up, down; the roller coaster goes.
Fowards, backwards; I walk on my toes.
Life’s a track, full of twists and turns.
You can reach the top; you can crash and burn.

One day you’re happy, the next day you’re not.
At first you believe, eventually you doubt.
You reach success; a six-figure salary.
You lose your job; a big wave of misery.

Expect the unexpected, try to stay realistic.
But never lose hope, stay optimistic.
You see life can be rough, full of sadness and sorrow.
But the bad things in life, might be gone by tomorrow.

So when riding the coaster; the roller coaster of life,
put on your seatbelt; because you’re in for a ride.
