Life is a Merry-Go-Round

Life is a merry-go-round;
it sends us spinning
never knowing when it will stop.


Round and round we go,
smiling on the way but
karma always catches up to us.


One day you'll receive
good fortune,
the next disaster.


If pain doesn't hit you this time,
it will in the next rotation:

every heart knows the same hurt.
