NaPoWriMo Day 4 – Being Alive

For day 4 of NaPoWriMo here is a piece I wrote after thinking what it would be like to have a typical 9 til 5 office job. . . I wouldn’t cope if I couldn’t work outside every day! It’s called “Being Alive”. 🙂

Do you ever
get that feeling
of restlessness

when you’re stuck indoors
behind a desk
on a beautiful, sunshiney day,

mounds of paperwork to one side
a calculator to the other,
and you feel like your brain
has melted. . .

It’s warmer indoors
than it is outside
you feel the sweat
beading on your forehead,

you’re so tempted
by what you see
the other side
of that window. . .

You stare so hard
wishing the glass would disintegrate
before your eyes

just so you can
toss everything aside
strip to your bare skin
and run naked through the grass
shouting whoops of delight as you go,

that warm, delicious sunshine
blazing to your core
until you feel it’s ignited
a fire in your heart

flames flickering until they shoot outwards
darting from your fingertips
bursting through your eyes. . .

you feel phenomenal
you feel incredible
this is what’s called
being alive.
