I board the massive roller coaster, knowing I will be thrilled
Aware that my quest for excitement will be fulfilled
Climbing the first hill the anticipation does build
A plunge so deep, terror sets in, leaves me chilled.
Hoping all bolts on the ride are tightly drilled
Imaging that if one came loose, I could be killed
Don't take stupid chances, advice parents have instilled
Beating my fear of heights, my mission I have filled.
