Poem: A Terrifying Journey

We were setting off on our journey.
Which we all hoped we would enjoy.
Eagerly waiting,with tickets in hand.
To get on and then settle down.

Now at last our time had come.
We all moved forward to board.
Got to our seats and looked around.
Great, its time to get belted in.

A jolt and then we moved forward.
Then the climb went on for ages.
At last it leveled of at its height.
Everyone looked out at the views.

All of a sudden we were dropping.
Straight down at an alarming speed.
A lot of people were squealing.
While others were very quite.

Thankfully at last we climbed back up.
We leveled of and then another big drop.
This happened a few times more.
Some people looked sick and worried.

Down again and we stayed level this time.
And at last it started to slow.
Then we came to a shuddering halt.
At least we all knew we were safe.

We undid our belts and looked around.
Some people were being very sick.
Others were happy and laughing.
But, no more big dippers for me.

  1. Terrible feeling … went thrugh something like that myself once … everything went well afterall, but I also found my hand tightly holding on to some guys knee … talk about being embarrassed … and apologizing ++ … be well, my friend. Love, cat. (http://catsruledogsdroole.blogspot.com/)

    • Cat , keep your hands of men’s knees 🙂

      I have just found the problem why i cannot comment on your blog, you need to change the comment settings to accept ” name and url ” its a problem because blogspot won’t fix it.

  2. At first I thought this was an airplane but now I see it’s a roller coaster!!! Haha! I’m usually the quiet one who turns green and then gets sick. Haha!

  3. 🙂 Great poem Harry! lol I always stay well away from roller coasters and this is why !

  4. This is great Harry!

    You had me feeling sick for a moment, that is, while I thought we were on a plane – I hate flying!

    I used to love Big Dippers! (Showing my age!! Much more sophisticated names now!) I would go on over and over and
    they were pretty rickety back then! Wouldn’t go anywhere near one now! LOL 🙂

  5. I love Roller Coasters but I used to be really scared of flying (nowadays that fobia is gone). Thought you were talking about an airplane ride which should’ve get me scared, but a big dipper is ok 🙂

  6. Great poem. Those rides always hurt a bit but they were so much fun! I also love your username. Great work.

  7. Internet Novice, Thank you for your comment and also for following my blog, i was over at your blog and what you are doing is needed, SEO, is a thing we all need but few understand the tech side, so i’ll will be back.

  8. Ha… I was thinking airplane too… the whole time, and was even about to type a comment about “was this a real flight?” Then it occurred to me, maybe he’s talking about a roller coaster… DUH? I used to hate roller coasters until my two kids both got old enough that both parents had to partner up with one of them to go on rides. So now I go on them, still never sure if I’m really enjoying myself!?!?!?

  9. I actually felt the dips, haven’t been in a roller coaster in years but am pretty sure those days are definitely over, LOL

  10. Weirdly enough, I thought it was a train! Nice one, Harry. 🙂

  11. We were setting of on our journey. off don’t you mean Harry

    • You may be right JO.

      ” Of ” is an ” adverb ” followed by a ” preposition ” but ” of ” is following a ” noun ” which cancels the ” preposition ” meaning the word ” of ” will be ok in the sentence.

  12. I went on a big dipper once.

    Never felt the need to do it again!!!!


  13. Loved that, Harry! (I had the same sentiments after riding my first – and last – “big dipper” roller coaster decades ago. 🙂 )

  14. First time I rode a rollercoaster was in Funderland in Dublin, so indoors and small. I spent the whole time praying to get down safely. Wasn’t feeling sick just petrified of heights. So my first time was my last time. Enjoyed your poem Harry.

  15. Thanks for the heads up Harry. One day…..maybe. 🙂
