Take Me Back to Where I Belong.

When simple things brought me the most joy

When the hardest choice was the easiest to make

When colorful things were my sorrows cure

When the reasons for my actions were the most pure

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When happiness was in early morning cartoons

When staying up past 10 gave me the most thrill

When running around on the streets was great fun

When jumping high off the swings gave me freedom

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When I would look forward to recess at school

When ice cream and sprinkles made me smile

When shapes of the clouds were my main concern

When excitement was actually in wanting to learn

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When my dreams and desires were stronger than life

When creativity would flow out of my soul

When I’d speak my mind without thinking twice

When my heart wasn’t close to the coldness of ice

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

If I could sum up one of my life goals in 3 words it would be to ‘travel the world’. As cliché as that sounds it is actually one of my biggest dreams. I love to venture and most importantly I love the journey. What good is the destination without the eager and lingering journey? We all live in our hometown where we were most likely born, grew up and got educated, and where we continue to build our future. What we fail to realize is that this is just a small piece of this huge world we live in. There is so much out there for us to experience and be a part of. The world has so much more to offer. I’ve always wanted to experience cultures that are very different from mine, and see places that I’ve never seen before. I’ve been in Canada, more specifically Ontario all my life. It is wonderful here so I’m not complaining, but I’ve seen it all. I want to see new places. Everything is so beautiful to see in pictures, but imagine actually being inside that picture and being a part of it all. Imagine how breathtaking that would be.

Some places that I would be most excited to travel are (in order): Mecca, Saudi Arabia; Dubai, UAE; Sharm el-sheikh, Egypt; Cape Town, South Africa; Casablanca, Morocco; Barcelona, Spain; Salvador, Brazil; Mumbai, India; Seoul, Korea; Venice, Italy; Agra, India; Cancun, Mexico. These are just to name a few, because I have a very long list. Everyplace I listed is very unique to each other, and their culture, society, traditions, as well as the overall environment are very different from that of my own. The pictures of these places you can hold in your hand (or save on your computer via Google images), but the actual experience is one to embrace in your heart forever. It would be life changing to travel and see all these places, and touch all the wonders of the world that you see in the pictures with your own hands. It would just be astonishing & overwhelming. One day, just one day…
