Ready to Ride
By: Helen Zhang
at the roller coaster- a steel giant.
I feel like a timid rabbit
but I still go with the flow
I let the operator
scan my ticket as I go
My friends are far ahead of me
they're ready for the thrill.
But I'd rather be at home right now-
watching television on the couch
because I've always preferred a quiet life
not prepared for a life of thrills
But since I'm already here
I guess there's no turning back.
