"Experience is the hardest teacher, because she gives the test first and the lesson later..."

"Don't make her fall if you aren't planning to catch her..."

Standing there, heart pounding
Head spinning, sweaty palms
“Why an I doing this?”
This is not going to end well

I step in the cart
My stomach turns
A thought of regret
The bar comes clamping down

Here we go…
Climbing and creaking
My anxiety gets worse
I feel like I am going to explode!

Get me off
Tick, tick, tick
Get me off
Tick, tick, tick
Reaching the peak
Get me off
And then dive

And then… I feel like I am the King of the World!
Even though I’m only a girl.
My fears disappear
I might actually enjoy this
I feel as I am on top of the world!

Going up and down the hills
Laughing and screaming
Searching for air!
I turned to look at him
He might actually be scared

Into a curve we go







The metal wheels start grinding and turning

A screeching halt!

I smiled and turn to him

“Wanna go again?”

The author's comments:
I love going on roller coasters, and I just got into writing poems.I read someone else's poem on roller coasters, which is basically what inspired me to write this. I don't like the beginning and the endings okay. But the rest I feel confident in.
