"It's not what people call you, it's what you answer to."
-Tyler Perry(Madea)

The sun, the water, the beautiful beyond.
It’s calling me back to where I belong.
To sail around the world has always been my dream.
I’m finally going to do it, nothing’s going to stop me.

If I don’t do it now, I never will.
I would miss out on the adventure, the wonder, the thrill.
Slowly but surely, I’m finding my way.
I may not get tomorrow so it’s got to be today.

I’m talking a chance and following my heart.
I’ve made up my mind, I’m ready to start.
Won’t listen to anyone, ignoring resistance.
I’m realizing my dream, I’m going the distance.

This is not true about me but I thought it made for a good poem.
