Often seeking roller coasters,
fast boats, thrill rides, moving trains,
racing in their classic roadsters
keeps blood pumping in their veins.
Danger and exhilaration,
often going hand-in-hand,
fill life with anticipation,
cause horizons to expand.
Mocking fate without a second
thought, the daring wants an edge,
vigor as they never reckoned,
walking on the rooftop ledge.
They can only tame their fear
if they test the next frontier.
