The Ups and Downs


The original,

 

 

The ups and downs

keeps one tied down

happy to see the rise

sad to experience the fall.

 

A climb up is  a struggle

hard work marks it

a slide down is easy

many factors  go to make it.

 

Expenditure over revenue

a happy go lucky attitude

misfortune the least

contribute to failures.

 

All of us know

pay no attention

till the going is good

make merry and spend.

 

As the tides turn  back

the results show a negative

the fear grips  slowly

grief strikes quickly.

 

Similar to the  waves

a progress in the run

a retrieve without fun

day in day out it happens.

 

The river flows undisturbed

the sea roars unmoved

the life  goes on likewise

with a ripple and a furore.

 

The edited version,

 

The ups and downs punctuate life
the ups bring happiness
the downs befell grief.

Excesses lead to disaster
one of expenditure over revenue
another of lies over truth.

We know the consequences
yet renew them unwittingly
targeting the short-lived benefits.

We fail to take the cue from Nature
which exists with a placidity
ignoring the tempestuousness around
strong and firm.

A genuine opinion is needed from the readers.Please vote for the best.
