A Poem by Quinn

A re-working of an older poem of mine from back in July 2014 entitled "A ticket to anywhere" - (


This is going to sound cliché as f**k

But I want to see the world, travel, I want to be awestruck

I want to lose myself in cities, whilst finding who I am

I want to spend nights on beaches, and sleep on the sand


I mean I really want to go to space but Singapore will do,

just so long as I see Turkey, Brazil, and Stockholm too

And even if I do get lost or lonely, I know that I’ll see it through

Cos all my body wants to do is travel and explore everything new


Let me stumble over phrases, struggle with currency and signs

Let me try and follow a map, trace along random lines


I want jabs to protect me from more than just the flu

I’ll take 10 shots for Nigeria, Burkino Faso and many more too


I love my home, don’t get me wrong, and here there’s much more to see

Direct me to the Shetland Ilse and I will feel like I’m free


I want to see what people have built across the globe

The grand architecture, the cities, the homes

I want to experience what’s forged in nature

From the tops of mountains to the bottom of valleys where little roams


Let me see history carved before me

Let me see the memories of lust

Let me see the remnants of love, peace, and war among the dust


Give me a ticket to anywhere

I’ll pack my bag and I’ll go

The world is vast and wide

And it’s where I want to go

Author's Note

I know that there is not a fantastic form to it and I appear to change the style a little. I'm going to perform it in my bedroom to see if this should be changed before I perform it at my next open mic. Hope you enjoyed all reviews are welcome xx
