Behind The Screens

I have always been behind the screen.

Glimpsing into worlds,

I can never physically exist in.

I want so many things,

Never to exchange lives for the worst,

[Who would want that?]

But just to have the experience.

A share of others portrayed happy moments.

Just for the experience.

What is the importance of a curious mind?

Why be born with it if you cannot satiate it?

Going in search of things you can never have


Because you do not share the other’s bloodline, history, battles, privileges

And the list could go on for eternity.

Name your excuses.

I see with my eyes

And “like” with the click of a button, tap of a finger

Then scroll to the next view that ignites my curiosity.

Curious about what it will be like;

To be in that country, exposed to its opportunities and recreational activities.

Exposed to those foods, constantly wetting my taste buds.

Within the crowd, sharing the rush of excitement in the air.

On those landscapes, taking in the scenery and different air.

In seats of power, where one could kneel at your command.

A position of influence, where all feed from your hands.

I have always been behind the screen

Comparing and contrasting your world with mine

Some call it envy, others coveting.

Can’t it simply be a thirst for your daily experience?

An opportunity to wear your shoes, only in your happy moments.

A moment to satiate my curiosity

About your experience.
