I’d rather be
At the beach
In the sand
In the water

I’d rather be
At the lake
Under the sun
In the grass

I’d rather be
In the city
Under the lights
Beside the buildings

I’d rather be
In the woods
By the trees
Over the roots

I’d rather be
In a plane
Over the city’s and streets
In the clouds

I’d rather be
But here.

I like the message in this poem and instead of saying I'd rather be anywhere but here, you used situations and made it a true poem:)
