Roller-coaster of emotions;
contentment, unease, raw emotions;
one minute, all cheerful and happy;
the next, doubtful, fearful and crappy.
The leap of faith, exhilarating;
the wave of shock around, attention seeking.
The leap was easy;
the fall is heady and unsteady.
The wrapping up, the packing up;
emotional and nostalgic!
Catch my breath, find my bearing;
brain freeze, mind blank, I sit staring!
Re-winding the time, the words;
all too fast, too jumbled, up in the clouds;
successes, failures, challenges, triumphs,
fatigue, stiffness, mirth, the laughs.
“Farewell” I am told; ease the fall I pray;
“will miss you loads” they hold and say.
Kindness on their face, sadness in equal dose;
appreciated I feel, a smile I try to freeze.
Rollercoaster of emotions on a loop
the fall prolonged given the height of the leap.
The landing, yet only in the mind;
what it holds not known, gems I hope to find!
Feelings of in-command, the leash in my hand;
feelings of joy at the freedom like that of a bird;
feelings of insecurity, anxiety, a sense of murk;
feelings of isolation, akin to stumbling in the dark.
What a roller-coaster ride I have begun!
