Like a Yo-Yo


I bounce to the right

Veer back to the left

I lean into the day

Slip back into the night

One day – joy, happiness

The next – gloom, sadness

I look forward to something

Slip back into nothing

Up and down

Side to side

Up and down

Side to side

So tired of yo-yoing

Want a firm landing

When, when, when?

When will this happen?

How long, long, long?

Can I sing this sad song?

Please, let me stop

Please!

Let me not miss life
