Take me to the Mayan ruins
where walls are carved with tales.

Take me to India,
where elephants roam the land
and people cover themselves in beautiful cloth.

Take me to Spain,
where the buildings are elegant,
and the language romantic.

Take me to Saudi Arabia,
where I can feel the desert sand between my toes
and the hot sun beating on my back.

Take me to Paris,
where I can see the Eiffel tower
and climb the 1652 steps to the top.

Take me to Egypt,
where I can see pyramids on the horizon
and camels roaming the land.

Take me around the world,
so i can indulge myself in guilty pleasures
of language and culture.
Let me see the world through my lens
and photograph its beauty.

Take me away
Take me away

(another poem from high school)
