Izzy is cool.
She's not only gorgeous on the outside,
She is also beautiful and cool on the inside.
Izzy would reserve her judgments and be ready to listen to others talk.
She's unassuming and would be open to mingle.
Had the border been open, I reckon she would be traveling still,
before she begins her courses at the Police School for real.
I think traveling changes people,
it makes people better people if you travel for real,
and not be a tourist about it everywhere you go.
But to learn and listen, research, and explore off the typical trails.
Thinking about the shut borders,
I feel worried that those in their 20s may grow up being more bigotted, more shut-in,
less open-hearted and understanding like those that travel the world.
Meeting Izzy brings hope.
I do still pray for the borders to open soon,
so that those in their 20s can travel, and see other people and other ways of living;
so that they may come home, humbled and become more loving souls.
Izzy, I think, is the kinda traveler who is set to become a great one.
She's so chill, which is a typical trait of those well travelled.
She wants to become a police woman, which I know she'll do an amazing job of.
She's always ready to listen, and recognises the value in others and knows when to acknowledge them.
Izzy was just as calm as I was when we both saw the man who passed away on the beach.
Izzy I find is also very kiwi, she'll down that one extra gulp of drink to pump herself up for the dancefloor,
She'll also take leave early at night,
When Leila, Kasia and I were just beginning to settle down on the beach to stargaze for longer.
Izzy's gone to the jungles in Malaysia and lived abroad in Canada.
If the borders werent shut, she'd be one of those globetrotters that would change the world one trip at a time by changing themselves.
I feel sorry for those in their early 20s in NZ & Australia right now, they're missing out on so much grandeur out there in the world.
But I'm glad we got to meet Izzy.
Who's got a long way ta go on her journey which is yet to start for real .
Find me on:
