Ups and Downs

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 Joy and heartbreak

do the rounds

Would that our lives

 could, just be pleasure

No pain or woe 

for us to measure.
Why is it, things

 go so wrong?

Bad things happen 

not like in songs

How do I deal 

with the days

 that are black

When the roof 

caves in

The cheque

bounces back

I have to dig

in deep

To my reserves 

my internal resevoir. 

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 joy and heartbreak

do the rounds.
