The forest enchants,
Inviting you to play,
Survival is a dance,
Adventure is a step away.
Enjoying the wilderness,
Brings the soul to soar,
Scenery, smells, animals – yes!
What have I been waiting for?
Problems pale to wide open spaces,
Clarity and peace rule the day,
You slow down a 1,000 paces,
Happiness can be found in a sun ray.
This is the real world you desire,
Hope fills your heart,
Life doesn’t seem as dire,
You’re ready for a fresh start.
You go back home,
Remembering the sites,
Bottling that feeling with a poem,
Your dreams reach new heights.
