Round and round…

Round and round he goes

twirling and whirling




without fear that he can’t stop

without a care

round and round

speeds faster than he expected

but he still laughs

holds on a bit tighter

and when it stops

he stumbles with dizziness,  might fall

but he stands up, and asks for more

the merry-go-round of life hasn’t taken it’s toll on him

and for those of us who feel like we can’t go on

watch the boy who spins with no cares

and then smile, laugh, embrace the dizziness

and ask for more
