Come With Me
I am the greatest adventurer the world will ever know,
Just take my hand and off we'll go.
I have been to the mines of Moira,
To the very center of paranoia.
I have been to London and France,
I highly recommend it if you get the chance.
I have been on crime cases that would make your skin crawl,
I have spoken Elvin, Dwarfish, and with a Southern drawl.
I have traveled the world and have seen what only a few can imagine,
I have visited times of great plague and came back without a single contagion.
I have been to the great city of Oz,
Over and over I have fought for the rebel's cause.
I have sailed from sea to shining sea,
I have been imprisoned, I have been set free.
I have been to the Emerald Isle,
Been paddled on a throne across the River Nile.
I have battled fallen angels and demons by the ton,
Never giving a second thought to safety, never feeling an inkling to run.
I have met fantastic creatures far and wide,
With a few persisting I should be there bride.
I have fallen in love by the light of the moon,
I have had death promised to me sooner than soon.
I have given in to the monster within,
I have loved women, I have loved men.
I have learned how to be docile, I have learned to be a fighter,
I have learned when to loosen the rope, when to make it tighter.
I have learned when to die, and when to kill,
When to yell, and when my tongue should be still.
I have lived by lakes,
And felt winter's first snowflake.
I have lived in castles and in shacks,
I have fought the law and fallen through the cracks.
I have lived in mansions on hills,
I have watched flowers bloom on naked window sills.
I have traveled to planets people didn't know exist,
I have accomplished every single item on my bucket list.
I have visited the moons of Jupiter and Mars,
I have suffered both physical and emotional scars.
How have I done these impossible things you ask,
It was far too easy a task.
I simply opened a book and broke its spine,
Closed off the noise of the world, and opened my mind.
Tonight there is no telling where I will go or what I may see,
But you are more than welcome to come with me!
