Can I see the end ahead?

Spiral up
This life in a cup
Spiral down
This smile like a clown
A thousand steps I took
And to the end I look
Eyes see a two thousand ahead
Mind sees a black and in dead
To the night above
And to the soul, unloved
I took a turn; I fell back
And chose a new from the deck
This is life, a map
Each is a step I cap
Spiral up, these stairs
Spiral down, despairs
Now, a four thousand ahead
Can I see the end ahead?
