Dozens await, with anticipation, to experience it's excitement. Others go in to it with the biggest knot of fear in their stomachs. While waiting, some give comfort to the weary, forgetting their own feelings. Others simply worry about themselves & their own concerns. Though, when the time comes, no matter what, all get on board.

Everyone waits for it to begin, with many different ideas of what will be. The ride begins & everyone experiences it's constant ups & downs, twists & turns. After what seems so short to some but so long to others, the ride eventually comes to an end.
For a handful of the scared, the end completely opposes their earlier expectations. Some walk away happy to have had the experience, whether it be bad or good. While still others regret having ever gotten in line to begin the journey.
Is this how true love is or simply a ride on a roller coaster?
