Life is like a tire swing

Sometimes it's fun

Sometimes it's scary

But it always spins.

Sometimes it just goes so fast

That you can barely hold on

It's spinning out of control

And you can't make it stop.

Getting faster


And faster still.

And you think

"I wish it would stop,

Please god, make it stop."

So you jump off.

And it stops.

You're not spinning anymore,

It's over

No more pain

No more life.

Yet you look up,

And to your surprise

The tire swing is still spinning

Life is still moving on

Without you.
