My fear of flying started in my late teens,being strapped into an aircraft thousands of feet up in the sky with no way of getting off this ride.When you read about all of those legendary rock stars who perished in past decades it makes you think about your own mortality.
But as someone once told me "when your number is up then it's time",it's all about destiny and what fate had in stall for you.
I remember my first flight and the thoughts which flooded my head as soon as I boarded the airplane knowing that this is it I can't turn around and get off.
Once the plane was air bound I began to relax and even enjoy the experience after consuming several shots of Jack Daniels whiskey.
Now I can finally say I've overcome my fear of flying at last but it took me several flights to do so.

Air Travel Phobias
-
Waiting in the airport lounge as the anxiety begins to build
As I dread my departure,my heart becomes tension filled
Taking off and landing will occupy the thoughts in my mind
On this terrifying journey which is how I often find
-
Turbulence is common when there are stormy skies ahead 
Being shaken from side to side fills me up with fear and dread
Just last week two planes came crashing down to earth
A lesson to us all of our fragile lives and what they're worth
-
On boarding the plane my hands start to tremble and shake 
As panic fills me up on those first few steps that I take
Securely locked up and by now having taken my seat
Fear rushes through me as I am desperate to retreat
-
Soon the engines can be heard and my journey is about to start
As my blood races through my veins,pumping faster to my heart
Knowing that my fate is completely out of my hands
Until the plane arrives safely on dry land
