In that Roller Coaster

When I was young

Maybe three years old

I had a dream

Went on a coaster

Went upside-down

I fell out

Coaster ran over me

Determined to face my fear

I decide to try

Climbing in the seat

Feeling nervous

Securing myself in

Feeling the coaster rush

We go up

We go down

"This is awesome!"

I faced my fear

Looking back

I do not know

Why I was afraid

Now I know

There was really

Nothing to fear

In that roller coaster.
