Living My Dream Alone

Living my dream on my own
going to wherever I possibly can
visiting many parts of the world
seeing lands where before I was ban

In an instant to go anywhere
click my fingers I was there
never needed to face winter again
follow the sun to where it did fare

Go into whole nature worldwide
see it's beauties at any place
watch the great creatures at work
what a picture such pure solace

See friends living wherever worldwide
drop in and catch them by surprise
give no warning that you're coming
coming over the hill around sunrise

So this really is only a dream
but a nice one just the same
you never know what'll come true
one day maybe it'll be no game

(In college, a professor asked the class a simple yet profound question that impacted them. And it made me realize that I struggled with the answer because I had forgotten how to dream, making me realize how much of ourselves we lose when our dreams are lost. So here's the question.
What woke up today with nothing but a backpack, a plane ticket and a note??, go anywhere, anytime with all the money you need.)
