Heavy heart, thumps like a drum,
Tightly clenched; four fingers, one thumb;
Beads of sweat trickle down like falls,
Ominous winds shadow me like walls.
Yet I know I must go on.
To find myself; but I look upon
The winding paths ahead of me.
I shy away, but something tells me
This is the way, I’m soon to see
How this brand new route will help me.
I’ll love, I’ll laugh, and I’ll be proved wrong.
It’s new, it’s a challenge, but I’ll stay strong.
A new beginning is calling to me,
Across seven lands and seven seas.
A life of adventure, but as I depart,
I feel a sadness in my heart.
For deep within me, I’ll always know
When I leave home I will feel sorrow.
But my old life is never lost forever:
So in my new one, I shall endeavour.
