Up one minute, down the next...
Up one minute, down the next...

One minute, you're fine, and nothing seems wrong -
You're doing your laundry and watching your health -
But suddenly, you get anxious that this won't last long,
'Cause memories are lurking...they're hiding in stealth...
One minute, life's great, your future seems bright,
You're so full of passion, of energy and hope,
But suddenly, depression has hit you at night,
And you're left there, wondering, "How do I cope?"
One minute, you're happy, you're laughing and smiling,
Joking with friends and having a good time,
But suddenly, you realize those problems are piling:
They're now stacked high - you're dreading the climb.

Up one minute, down the next...
Up one minute, down the next...
Top of the world, bottom of the world...
In this atrocious CHAOS I swirled...

Down one minute, up the next...
Down one minute, up the next...

...Wait.

...What?

Down one minute, up the next?
What is this reversal in my text?
Bottom of the world, top of the world?
In this HILARIOUS chaos I whirled?

One minute, you realize those problems are piling -
They're stacked so high you're dreading the climb.
...but suddenly, a night out has got you all smiling,
And confident you'll solve your problems in time.
One minute, you find you're depressed at night,
Sitting there and wondering, "How do I cope?"
...but suddenly, you realize your future's still bright;
You see yourself progressing with energy and hope.
One minute, you get anxious that this won't last long,
'Cause memories are lurking...they're hiding in stealth...
...but suddenly, you encounter men who prove you wrong -
Survivors who thrive with consistent spiritual health.

Down one minute, up the next.
Up one minute, down the next.
I guess that's the thing with ups and downs -
They chase each other like two silly clowns.

Up one minute, down the next.
Down one minute, up the next.
A roller coaster ride that leaves you vexed -
A ride without ends that leaves you perplexed.

Now that I actually sound like a clown,
I'll humbly state the point of my text:
When you find yourself utterly down,
Now you know what's coming up next smile

I'm sick
sick of it all
first you soar
then you fall
you never know
when it will hit
one minute sugar
the next minute shit
it never ends
it never does
what is now
is what was

Great poem CH ...
I'm all too familiar with EVERY word you said.
Today has been the worst.
It started bad and then got worse then better again
and now I'm back to bad.
I'm not sure how much more of this I can take.
