Life is a roller coaster
Where each ride leaves you wanting moree
Where happiness is best foundation and sadness uncalled for
Where people stand in line waiting to be your partner and experience the ride with you
Where you have to only hope best and leave the rest to discover
People come and go but only the best will stay
So as you ride your coaster, only have one thing in mind
That in life the ride taht goes up
Must go down and come up again
Where the experience lies but only on you and how you deal with experience
So enjoy your ride because you never know if it is your last
Jump off to Jump on but enjoy
Life is a roller coaster
