Once in life we've embarked on that journey
With all the excitement and vision of how great and epic it would be
Turns out it wasn't as smooth a ride as we expected
"I was wrong" is the thought that has since then kept playing in our head
It was a voyage full of promises of amazing views
A once-in-a-lifetime experience offered to only a few
Indeed it was the picture of a perfect vacation
The things that can spoil the fun they forgot to mention
The frightening waves, the overwhelming crowd
The thunder's roar, the music too loud
The eerily quiet nights, the sense of isolation
The homesickness, the bouts of depression
That journey has had us reeling
From shock and disbelief, it had us thinking
Was it worth the try? Was it worth our time?
Would we be willing to do it again even if it felt like we almost died?
