My Life Is Like A Merry-Go-Round

My life is like a merry-go-round
with the merriment going as it
goes round and round
and where it stops
I do not want to go

or maybe more like a roulette wheel
turning always turning around
and where the ball falls
I do not really want to know
because it's not where
I want it to

and I long for a world
free from hardship, free from tears,
free from worries and pain
and free from the force of destiny.
