The journey of Joseph Banks…

Beyond our safe and familiar land,
Unknown materials float in lone and forsaken far stretched waters
Of lush coral and gold tinted sands.

Beyond our safe and familiar land,
A man with talent and much interest in flora and fauna
Is rocked around on a manmade model of wood.

Sir Joseph has the belief of a more precious treasure than gold.
A treasure that requires a clear understanding,
A treasure that has been with us since the beginning of time.

Beyond our safe and familiar land,
Time passes like an arrow.
The once still waters grow aggressive and unforgiving.

Far ahead of our rough and hurtful land,
Now all is strangely silent.
The sun streams through the palms and nature is flourishing.

Suddenly you feel alive.
Here, there is no darkness nor fear.
This remarkable journey is marked as history.
