O, Young man, do not sulk and snivel,
Time to pack your bags and travel.
Break barriers, leave your domicile.
Observe, learn, improve your profile:
The world offers grand avenues to marvel.
Out there it’s full of drama, wit and wonders -
Filled with people of many colors and genders.
Go hike the Rockies, cruise the Amazon,
Feel the gratitude, expand your horizon,
Walk the rainforest and hear its monsoon thunders.
See the gushing ravines fed by melting snow,
See how the flora and fauna put on a show.
But first be sure to have respect for nature -
Enhance your self-esteem, build your stature:
That'll make your empathy and love for life flow.
Travel young one, go far and wide,
I promise you, it'll be a worthy ride.
When you see nature's expansive beauty,
You'll revere this planet, with piety:
Only then claim it as your own with pride.
