Fear of Flying.

All her life she was scared,

Scared of many things,

But the one thing that was the worst

Was she was scared of flying,

Would not get on a ‘plane

For love or money.

She made a decision,

She was determined,

Determined to conquer,

Conquer her fear,

Her fear of flying.

She joined many others

And went on a course

To conquer her fears.

The message came to me,

“This is wonderful!”

Her fear is conquered,

So much so

That now she is flying,

Flying on cloud nine.

    A fine write Gold. Can you recall any flying in 1066? Did spy planes scan the land for the battle plans of the enemy?

      Thanks Orchi.

      Only those pigs flew in those days.

            Hello Goldfinch60.

            An excellent poem. Apparently the first lady of soul, the late Aretha Franklin was terrified of flying.
            Keep writing

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you FineB, yes I had heard about Aretha's fear but it didn't stop her from becoming the first lady of soul.

              Hi, Goldfinch. I used to have a fear of flying, but after i did fly a time or two my fear went away. I was also helped in learning that automobiles were much more dangerous. For some reason that doesn't scare me.

              • Goldfinch60

                Hi w c,
                Yes flying is the safest way to travel.
