Sometimes I wonder,
What it would be like,
To explore forests, go on a hike,
Sail the seven seas, have adventures,
Embark on a journey, go on a quest,
Unfortunately, that stuff is only for the best.
Whenever I think about it,
My mind goes wild,
I imagine doing these things, even though I’m just a child,
I’d swing my sword,
Backhand, side cut, overhead, thrust,
Against bloodthirsty enemies where skill is a must,
I’d be a captain of a ship,
Calling orders,”Heave ho!”
Weaving my way through rocks, to and thro.
But my conscience brings me back,
I feel light and heady,
Mother was calling, supper was ready.
