Maldives

I have to leave here to know how good it is
To stay any longer can only jeopardize all reality
A definite one place to be solely missed
This one place to have restored all faith in humanity

However... you need to be in dire to finally be here
You need to be lost and destroyed to know what here means
The very kind of restoration you would believe in fear
Because right here will you only believe it... a dream

You will become friendly in it's inland practice
Well fed and well indulge in all absence of the world
Almost unreal to be unreasonably held captive
Before here... I truly wonder how have I kept myself a whole?

Perhaps you have seen what this place can do
Have you felt what this place can enchant?
There isn't even racism to be judged anew
There is simply only a you with nothing more to want

I can understand its existence regardlessly
Because the world we share in isn't a friendly zone
Exactly why to stay any longer will mean jeopardy
When you know how this world isn't a place to call home
