The journey would be long, I would have to leave my home,
My friends and family so hard earned, behind.
So I said my long goodbyes.
And packed what I thought I would need.
Little did I know how unprepared I would be.
I steeped out onto my doorstep, and onto the path.
Near my home it was still stone and brick,
So the journey seemed easy then.
I almost skipped down the road,
Skipped in glee,
And the thought of all the crazy adventures waiting for me.
