There is a huge Merry-Go-Round, it is so bright and it turns so incredibly fast!

I watch it circle and circle again, I want to jump on but do I have the courage to take that first step. What if I miss the step? What if I don’t reach the hand hold?

What happens to the kids that fall off? Where do they go, I can’t see them.

If I manage to hold on and if I manage to climb on a tall horse will I be able to grab the ring?

I’ve got the ring, it’s mine.
