Roller Coaster

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
GET ME OFF!!

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
Whirling

Whipping


Winding



Woah!

Down

We


Go

The metal wheels start grinding and turning
Gasp!

A screeching halt!

I smiled and turn to him

“Wanna go again?”
