Often we compare,
life to a roller coaster,
an amusement park ride,
of ups and downs.

Do we enjoy,
the slow steady climbs,
the peaks? Or,
do we most,
crave the deep,
plunging descents,
and the disarray,
of the unknown?

The twists and turns,
that follow.

Does the answer,
reveal our true nature? Or,
something missing from it?

We sabotage,
create suffering,
seek the unknown,
and uncertainty.

Why?

To create lives of chaos,
to satiate,
an instinctual need,
for survival…
