Playground Imitates Life

SeeSaw

The swing:  Life is full of ups & downs,
& sometimes jumping off before we’re ready.
The slide:  We can climb to the top,
only to have to start all over
to get there a second time.
The merry-go-round:  Sometimes we spin in circles,
but going nowhere can be fun.
The jungle gym:  Life is full of obstacles,
but there is more than one way out of them.
The monkey bars:  If we reach high,
we can keep our chin up.
