The vast ocean of sparkling blue
Beneath an equally vast azure sky -
What i would give for that view,
To see more than these same walls,
To leave this routine of every day,
To just for a moment get away.

Books can only take me so far,
The expansive worlds soon fading.
I can't drive myself away in a car,
My skills still so sorely lacking.
So I can only wait and dream
Imagining all to be more than they seem.
