Not sure if this fits for perception, but I'll put it as that. Most of the time, I like who I am. The one thing I wish I could change the most, is travel. For one reason or another (mostly lack of money), I haven't gotten to travel like I would like to.
Wanting for the Wanting

Looking down the train tracks
I wish I could go that way
But I'm pulled in both directions
Watching the plane fly overhead
I wish I could be in it
I stand and watch in reflection
Is it simply the travel
Or some deep-seated need?
To make me long for
Places I so often read about?
Is it wanting for the wanting
Or dissatisfaction with me
To make me wish for
Something I may never be?
Seeing a film set in a far away place
I think that it is just right
But am I simply dreaming again?
Holding a small ruby in my hand
I want to search for them
But I wonder if I do this all in vain?
