Headshot of Rebecca Webb

The world feels like a fever dream

The number of days seem endless

 

Anxious inhales and exhales

Each uneasy breath pouring concrete

 

April is a wall of stone

I cannot fathom the future

 

But while darkness looms,

I blindly search for a match

 

And brick by brick the wall crumbles,

As each page I turn sends me through it

 

Every book is a new place

Each day a different adventure

 

I spend Monday in Thailand,

Then Wednesday in India

 

I sail to the southern kingdom of ice

I soar on the wings of a griffin

 

My lungs fill with fresh salty air

The smell of paprika tickles my nose

 

Odysseus’s journey no more,

For the pages have set me free

 

And the grin that appears,

Sparks a flame of hope
