Wanderlust

This is something little that I made while experimenting with sonnets. It’s really just a whimsical look at the world from the eyes of a child who hopes that life is as exciting and amazing as every book says it is. You and I both know it’s not, but it’s still something.

Scott McSonnet

Stories and sonnets as far as the eye can see.

Young and impressionable, waiting for what the world can offer me.

I’ve heard of knights and dragons and treasure.

I’ve heard about large kingdoms and their lure.

 

I can’t wait to go on my own adventure

For when I can leave all I know behind and begin a new venture.

 

I will climb mountains of snow

And scale canyons so low.

 

I will finally touch the clouds,

What my feet have never aloud.

 

If I could see all of the creatures in the ocean,

Maybe even ride the waves above them and admire their commotion.

 

I could try to hunt down a dragon who has captured a princess,

Finding my own damsel in distress.

 

What if I could find a way to shoot magic from my hands,

Or travel to uncharted lands.

 

Why stop there when I know there is much more to behold.

I could travel to different dimensions or outer space, no matter how cold.

 

What I wouldn’t give for the chance to live out these fantasies,

The horizon is so promising, there’s so much to see.

 

The world has so much promise.

I can’t wait to see if it’s as exciting as the stories and sonnets.
