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.

There! little girl; don't cry!

Are things of the long ago;
