Bring on the Luge!


Bring on the Luge!

My life has not been an easy path,

I’ve ridden a luge,

Not so much in competition,

But a fast paced life riding up the walls,

And to the edge,

Afraid to catch my breath,

Thinking each one might be my last,

I’m living too fast,

Dragging my feet at times,

Trying to slow this frantic pace,

Telling myself it’s not a race,

Then down again across,

 The main part of the chute,

 And up, up, up the other side,

Life’s too narrow, not very wide,

I want to stop,

And see the view,

But what can I do?

Barely in control,

It’s an auto pilot I need,

But as I pick up speed,

White knuckles and screams,

Plans and dreams,

Whiz past,

Fast,

So fast,

I have just long enough,

To contemplate the end,

And I grin,

For I’ve taken a luge,

For a spin,

And if I could,

I’d go once again,

And this time,

Let it fly,

Holding my hands way up high,

Fast,

So fast,

Bring it on!

    1. The rollercoaster has many of the same thrills with life whipping past you and stinging your face, rounding corners that you’re sure will be your last, the steady clicking as the car climbs upward, hanging suspended in time while seeing the world in slow motion, and then the sudden lurch downward before mind and stomach can agree on whether to bail or enjoy each second.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
