Favorite Quote:
I plan to live forever or die trying.

A beast that goes by the name; Ring of Fire
Once I’ve tried to ride but ended in fail
With encaged prisoners, thrilling cries dire
So, long ago I thought I could prevail

My heart jumped profusely while suspended
Hands griping the rails; impair demise
Temper of my stomach far from splendid
Deathly shocked with scare; dispense stifled cries

The face of torture seeks me again
Growling at me but I must venture
Refusing defeat; confidence I feign
Surely my stomach’s misadventure

Round and round the beast tries to provoke me
For the girl that never dared; I’m set free

I wrote about the second time I dared to ride the Ring of Fire that has haunted me since forth grade for my courage assignment.
