They say...

What goes up must come down

Every euphoric state returns to a frown

What ascends...descends

Every beginning…ends.

The brightest star will fizzle

A beautiful tempest becomes a drizzle

Every structure will crumble, no matter how tall

The strongest man will stumble, fall

Flat on his face

And grimy mire they’ll taste

So the challenge them, becomes to rise

Rise above and love the one’s you said you despise

Stand up and be proud, bow down and be humble

Up is down and vice versa, tumble

Through what we believe

And all we perceive

Shatter every deception

Alter every perception

But in my case…down is down

And up the same

Driving me insane

The tenacious pain

My ups fall down

A fake smile is worse than a frown

And some days that from is drenched in tears

Down defeats up and I’m left here

This is my greatest fear
