I hold my breath as we soar into the sky
There’s no time for thought, my heart it pounds
Ready to jump, to earth we plummet.
Hurtling to the ground
Afraid to look down
No time now for my fear of heights!
Not sure if we will make it down alive
But that's the thrill of the ride
The parachute opens with a bit of a jolt
We head up through the sky, like a lightning bolt
Then slowly we float towards the earth below
The sight is amazing, so calm and so free.
"Carp'e Diem"! I hear the instructor say
"I hope we all land safely today"!
