Ever since the beginning my heart has yearned to explore,
A sensation of curiosity bubbling within the very depths of my soul.
No nook or cranny could hide their secrets from me,
As I stood at the gates of life and threw them open.
As a child, my adventures were small,
Investigating the dark crawl space at my church,
Going up to the roof of my house, or my “castle” as I liked to call it.
Things that appeared daring and bold to a seven year old.
As the years flew by, the adventures augmented in size.
My travels soon took me across the vast expanse of the ocean
To far away places: London, Paris, and Madeira,
All new and exciting people, cultures, and views.
Now that I stare my future square in the face,
Like a knight staring into the brave unknown that is his quest,
I realize that in order to be satisfied with my occupation,
I must find something with time for a long vacation.
For this world is too breathtaking not to be explored,
And I want to gaze on all of its hidden jewels.
I may not be 100% sure about what I want to do yet,
But anything that allows me to travel will be the job that changes my life.
