I Might Fall
| I am afraid of going too high.
I am afraid of breaking my ankle.
I am afraid that I mighi not be able to walk again.
I am afraid that my mom might be sad.
I am even afraid that I will have to get surgey.
I am afraid of getting a cascet.
I am afraid of not being able to do fun things again.
I am afraid that I might loose an anckle bone.
I am afraid that I will have to use cruches.
I am even afraid I might loose my skates.
I want new skates.
I want new elbow pads.
I want new knee pads.
I want a new helment.
I even want a skateboard.
I want money.
I want some new shoes.
I want more skate protection.
I want a game system.
And I want to be safe.
