I Once Felt The Grass Under My Feet

Fri, 03/10/2017 - 16:59 -- Kate.N

I once felt the grass under my feet.

I could feel the vibrancy radiate through me

higher than the skyscrapers covering today’s skies.

I felt the sun on my face and heard the dulcet sound of

cascading waterfalls rather than trees falling into an abyss.

We once walked with curiosity and purpose; instead we

step mindlessly with our eyes purposely stuck to

our phones. I once saw people smile for no

apparent reason and you could feel their

Happiness --- where did it all go?
