The Journey to My Dear Nature


As city streets pass by me

Underneath the stormy skies

I yearn to be with nature

I only want my freedom

From city streets and neon signs

Beeping cars and bustling streets

I wish to be freed from it all

And travel to my dear nature

As I set off to dear nature

I wonder what will happen next

Walking across the big vast plains

Wondering what is next for me

I journey far and vast and wide

Looking for my dear nature

Over plains and thru the jungles

Fording rivers and swim thru seas

I journey many a mile

And then I began to realize

I was always in dear nature

Whether on plains, jungle, snow, seas

But then a traveler came forth

And told me a discovery

He told of the Island of Life

Filled with every type of landscape

Tundra, forest, grass, and canyon

Every landscape was on that land

He said it was filled with lots of life

Every animal possible

Bears, ligers, possums, everything!

He said the weather went with you

Anything you wanted happened

Whether it be snow, sunshine, rain, fog

It would happen anywhere there

I now yearn to be in that place

And so I set off

Over plains and thru the jungles

Fording rivers and swim thru seas

I journey many a mile

And then yet, I never find it

I pray to the Lord to help me

I pray again many a day

Finally, he sends me visions

And this is what he sent to me

I was in the clouds of heaven

I saw a lump in the distance

And then, a deep voice said to me

"Go to the Island of the Moon

And seek out the Big Portal Arch

Hidden at the tip of the north"

And when the dream faded away

I set off for Madagascar

For that's the Island of the Moon

And so, I set off

Over plains and thru the jungles

Fording rivers and swim thru seas

I journey many a mile

And then I reached Madagascar

My, my, what a jungle I saw,

I wish I could visit longer

But my destiny is up north

And, so I set off for the Arch

Over rivers and thru the green

Over grasslands and swim thru lakes

I journey many a mile

And then, I reached the coast up North

The coast up North was so so long

I wish I could visit longer

But the Arch is 'neath the waters

And so I dived 'neath the surface

Before long, I saw the Big Arch

Tall, long, rising above all

I decided to swim right thru

And then, my word, what a surprise!

I was back in clouds of heaven

And the same deep voice said to me

"Walk to the Island, my son

Walk to your very destiny

For it is where you belong

And where you gain eternal joy"

And then so, I began to walk

To my destiny, the Island

Over clouds of heaven, I walk

To the Island of Life, my home

My new home for eternity

For my life, for infinity

As I walked, I began to think

What it would be like over there

How many landscapes would there be?

Would the weather follow my will?

And must I do something firstly,

Or just relax forever on?

Then I see a bright yellow light

I reach it, and oh my goodness!

The Lord himself, right before me!

I take a bow, and then I say

"What must I do, Lord forever?

Swim thru a sea? Conquer a land?

Or just go on to the Island?

Name it, Lord, and I shall do it."

He hesitated, and then he said

"My son, I think you are the one

But to prove it, I must try you

Swim the Sea of a Thousand Years

Conquer Hell, and bring me the Devil

Then I shall let you go on forth

To the Island of Life, your home."

And that's exactly what I did.

I first swam that vast, fearsome sea

It took me only fifteen days

Despite the sea's forbidding name

Then I went to Hell and did battle

I won, and brought the Devil's head

The Lord said "Yes, you are the one

Go on to your home, the Island."

And that's exactly what I did.

I didn't have to walk, however

The world went poof! and there I was!

I cannot describe the beauty.

Valleys, mountains, forests, great plains

Elephants, lions, wolves, owls

Everything imaginable!

The sun was brighter than ever!

Though it glared too badly for me

I wished for some gentle showers

And suddenly, I got my wish!

Drip, drip, went the rain on the ground

I felt the sweetest harmony

I felt glad to be alive here!

I decided to go and write

About my journey to this place

And so I did

I found a paper and a pen

I began to write about it

When I was done, I then bound it

And sent it to Lord Almighty

At the Library of Heaven

They put the book onto their shelves

And forever the angels there

Read and talked about the book named
