Seven Seas

The ocean of my heart has seven different seas
Not Pacific, not Atlantic, but the waters of soul
They are
Happiness
Justice
Honesty
Devotion
Relatability
Punctuality

'Til I realized I'd ended up in south-east Asia
Sometimes these crazy journeys can really amaze ya
But you got to make a stop when your compass betrays ya
I was lost, with my location I couldn't come to terms
Until I met up with a doctor of a pachyderm
