Oh the Places I Have Yet to Go
I have never seen the opulent golden grand palace of Versaille.
I have never been to Santorini, the caldera in the sea
I have never been to Athens to see the ancient ruins from a boat in a quay.
I have never seen the Sphinx, sitting tall and proud
Or the Pyramids at Giza, where tourist are no longer allowed.
I have never been to Pisa, where a famous tower leans,
Never have I seen the Colosseum, were a gladiator will kill you by any means.
I would love to see Constantinople, I mean Istanbul, the Taj Mahal
Machu Pichu, the Louvre, and the Great Wall.
The Sydney Opera House, Bran's Castle in Romania, The White Cliffs of Dover,
Famous hotels in Dubai, and Stonehenge before it topple over.
I want to see Bavaria with castles big and small,
The Buddha of Kamakura, largest of them all.
The Maya, the Aztec, and the Inca in Peru,
The Middle of the earth in Ecuador, and the famous Waterloo.
To get the full view of the Windmills in Kinderdijk,
I would have to crane my neck.
I want to visit Kanchenjunga or Mount Everest in Nepal,
Or better yet Mount Erebus, the most southern of them all.
All of these places are on my bucket list
One by one, I will see these wonders, not one will be missed.
I am only one person, but I swear I will get to be
The first person in my family to see all that I want to see.
One day I will get there, just you wait
I will get there, I will not hesitate.
