In This Universe

by Alondra Zubia

In this world are amazing things that we can see, touch, smell, feel, dream and more; but, on the other hand, there are bad things too. We live in a society that encourages us to care only about ourselves, how to get more rich; a society where people judge others without knowing it, were the money is more important than everything, where humanity kills all the good things in its way. Wait … I’m not saying that everything is bad, but people aren’t robots—they don’t just want the colors black and white, a closed, small world where we can’t see and enjoying the beautiful and simple things around us that make us happy. I often feel that I’m from another planet or something like that—sometimes I just want to run away from everything and everyone. Sometimes I just want to feel free. I love to go to places where I can run, think, walk, climb, feel the fresh air stroking my skin, smell the special fragrance of life and nature. Where my eyes can take in beautiful landscapes, the night sky alight with millions of stars and an incredible moon. Oh God, we are so small in this universe.
