Dedicated to Mariam, Eloise, Chloe, and Erin
Floating in uncharted waters
After this voyage of many years,
Waves of faces overwhelm my eyes
But their smiles evaporate my tears.
I have just two pennies to rub together
And a dream to wash me ashore,
Yet it does not matter for I am free
To chase my destiny and soar.
Deposited on the land of inspiration
Anxiety clutches my soul,
But they take my hand and whisper
Just ahead of you lies the goal.
Breathing in the unfamiliar air
I smell a world of possibility,
On this utopian island of intellect
I know I will prove my capability.
