The mind’s a carousel,
The heart’s a joke.
The carousel revolves,
Slowly first,
Losing control–relinquishing it, rather.

The heart races–petrified.
Petrified of a new start,
Petrified of new beginnings. 

The mind’s a joke,
The heart’s a carousel.
The internal struggle for balance. 

The mind’s a carousel, 
The heart’s a carousel, 
Life’s a carousel, 
Out of control. 
A revolving belt of uncertainty, 
Out of control.
