Dear Christopher McCandless,
It seems like just yesterday you were here
With such a story to tell and lives to cheer up
But now you're gone, and nothing seems the same anymore
Before you left I asked you
I asked you why...
Why do you want to leave on such short notice
Why do you think that isolation is the best way to go
You tell me that there's more than this
More than what this horrid world has to offer
And with that you say nothing more....
You're on your way to something much bigger than you
To a place where no man has ever succeeded
To a place called Mother Nature
And you plan to conquer...
You've taken your look
And now its hard to forget her
Who is she?
Her withe the beautiful face
Her with the beautiful body
With hair as soft as louds
And her skin the color amber
Just like autumn wood
Her curves so exotic
Untouched by human's doings
And only the heavens know why
Call her Mother Nature...
She tempts you with her foreign beauty
And you do nothing
Knowing you can't resist
In her, you'll explore
And she won't stop you
Instead she'll welcome you
Her arms streatched out
Closing as you walk in
Wishing you knew better...
Her heart is unbarealy strong
Beaming down on you in the dead of Summer
Listen to her soft streams
Smell her floral perfume
Savor her breath as it bristles through your hair
Thank her for giving you such a sight
and mean it in your heart...
Find refuge in her
And rest your aching soul
Her bosoms of the earth, soft and plush
To configure your form
Her green lashes as big as fans
Shield you from her quiet storms
You'll sleep peacefully...
She'll wake you with her heart again
Beaming like crystal gold
Blend inside her organic hair
And watch her creatures take their morning stroll
Bathe in her crystal lakes
And hunt for the food she provides you
Drink the driplets left on her eyes
And bite her melons of honey dew
Savor her for as long as you can
She'll exist no more...
After you've recieved all that she could give you
What are you to do?
Only you can decide to stay or to go
Or she'll decide for you
And though it's best for you to leave
You establish your permanent stay
And demand her oh so kindly
To accept you for as long as you want
She Won't refuse.....
She makes it seem as though you are snugg and safe
Safe from the barbaric man
Safe from chaos
And most of all
Safe from hurt
Till one day
She turns on you...
Her floods run cold for you
And hail begans to fall
She creis heavy tears
And puffs her chilly breath
Her creatures hide away from you
Her melons quiver and die
You curse to her heavens
And demand to know why
Why has she done this?
Why has she betray you?
Why has she shown you a beautiful lie?...
Yet you forget
She's shown what was needed to you
To show you the mysteries
Of a forbidden life
And you chose to take her for granted...
Something you thought was so peaceful
Something you thought would
Stay one way forever
Has shown you
That you thought wrong
But now you can't go back
To make things right
Because she's decided
That is't best for you to stay
And you paid
With your careless life...
A friend you have yet to meet
