Favorite Quote:
"Creativity is the highest form of mental functioning." - E. Paul Torrance

I waited in a queue
So long and wide.
And now I was finally
On this thrill ride.

I waited for it to start
As my adrenaline ran high.
When I felt a fierce jolt,
I knew I was ascending into the sky.

I was at the top
At the very peak
When I let out
A sonorous shriek.

The coaster plummeted downward
Until it kissed the ground.
Then it turned me
Round and round.

I leaped off the ride
As it reach the station.
Saying to myself
I think it messed up my stabilization.

I was thinking about the time I went on a few roller coasters with a family friend. Then the poem just hit me.
