The Vacation


I took myself a vacation,
Though some say it was a holiday
As I needed to reduce my stress and worries
So I decided I needed and had to get away,
I wanted to go to somewhere different
A place just to rest and also relax
And to enjoy the scenery and its culture
And then maybe not even coming back,
Eagerly I packed up all of my clothes
Then I took all of my money to my last penny
I was so excited to leave my home
And go faraway where no one knows of me,
So I bought myself two tickets
Packed my luggage and I took my son
With no worries or regrets in front of me
I was just looking for happiness and also fun,
The journey it was long and tedious
The lines they were slow and also crowded
I guess I wasn't the only person who needed to escape
To others my mind must have been clouded,
Some were leaving from where I came from
While others where arriving to where I was leaving
More were traveling where I was heading
We all seemed to be interweaving,
I finally made it to my destination
I was relieved as I waited for my vacation to start
With no work or friends or relatives to worry about
Happy I was when I did depart,
Then the first night it came and went
And then in the middle of the very next day
I wished that I had stayed at home
And now I regret that I had gone away.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
