i wish i could say i’ve been around the globe and seen many places/
but i haven’t lived as long as some and still  seen plenty faces/
i hope to embrace different races with open arms and similar hearts/
maybe the question i should be asking is on which continent do i start?/
do i seek the rolling hills of england singling out your birthplace/
or the edge of the golden gate bridge where we might feel the earth shake/
as we wait to sit with griots we got the wisdom of many past stories/
i know i have to escape the shadow of the maple leaf and old glory/
need to expand my horizons you never know maybe i could learn a thing/
i can’t wait til we are in norway one day and we will exchange our rings/
