Bouncing on Life's Trampoline - Visitor's Poem

by Pranitha Devi Wickins
(Pietermaritzburg; kwazulu Natal, South Africa)


Up, down, up, down
light little feet with smiling faces
Up, down, up, down
joyous squeals‚€™, little hearts races

No cares, no worries, no challenges to meet
just fun and laughter and being upbeat
Up down, up down
light little feet with smiling faces
Up down, up down
joyous squeals, little hearts races

Little feet soon grow up a bit
no longer so light, so careless, so cute
Up, down, up down
heavier feet with determined faces
Up down, up down
get higher than my friends, win all the races

Up and down, up and down
am I going as high as I can
Up and down, up and down
Can I go higher, look I am now a man

The ‚€œdowns‚€ knock the wind right out of my sales
the ‚€œdowns‚€ are bad, I hate to fail
but the harder I push and listen to the wise
the quicker I bounce and the higher I rise

I‚€™m on the trampoline of life
I have to have a career and a wife
a car, a house, a white picket fence
a sport, a dog and good common sense

'Cos to have and to hold
is not as easy as it seems
when you plunge down low
and you lose your precious dreams

But I continue to push
and suddenly I‚€™m up
I feel the surge of joy
as God overfills my cup

Up and down, up and down
I love this game I call my life
Up down, up down
my success, my goals and my strife

The lower it seems that I sink
the higher it is that I seem to rise
So I ignore the obvious, necessary pain
'Cos my sight is on life‚€™s upcoming highs

Up, down, up down
light little feet with smiling faces
Up, down, up down
my little ones feet, their little heart races.
