First, a steep incline
Seeming never ending
The sky almost in reach

A downward pull
Quick and holding the present
Of fear and whiplash

After the vision is no longer blurred
There is excitement and enjoyment
Happiness and appreciation

Seconds, maybe minutes
And then it is over
As if it never began

Specks of Gray

There is black
And there is white
And as a kid
You are blind to
What is in between
But as you grow
You begin to see
That there are
Specks of gray
Life is not in
Black and white
Not everything can be defined
Good Bad Right Wrong
See those?
Those are spaces
Between good and bad
Between right and wrong
Life is gray
