Roller Coaster

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.

    Somewhat like life, ups and downs, taking chances and the thrill of overcoming fears and yes a bit of danger. Thanks for the ride. I also wanted to say hi.

    Literally and figuratively a scary proposition. May all your ups and downs from here on out be between satin sheets. ;-) Joe

    Yes, my fear of heights was so strong I was afraid to stand out on a balcony, now I go on all of them : )
