I see images of places and 
destinations that I’ve 
never seen. 

Places so far 
out of reach, yet 
so familiar. 

And it saddens me 
because it’s unlikely that I’ll ever 
perceive them not just through digital 
screen but with my own two eyes. 

I’ll never feel 
the sensation of the cool arctic 
breeze as it prickles pecks on my cheeks, 

I’ll never breathe pure air
from the mouth of mountain trees, 

I’ll never experience life 
outside of my own…

Will any of us ever at this point?
