Roller Coaster

Roller coaster

They said this would happen.

At the end of the roller coaster ride, the light is up ahead but I can’t reach it.

I try to push; to end the ride.

This is what I chose. This is what I want. But no matter how hard I try, it pulls me back.

A hand on my shoulder then a voice in my ear:

“Wanna go again?”
