I thought to be alive was priceless, but turns out living is more.

Priceless

Boxed in

Surrounded

No way to escape

Seconds minutes hours days months years decades lifetime

I thought to be alive was priceless

But turns out living is more.

Because my feet know nothing but the terrain of my hard wood floors

Instead of soft grass between my toes,

My hands know nothing but the chilling leather of my sofa

Instead of the rough bark of a tree,

My lungs know nothing but the weak air sifted through a filter

Instead of the silky air that flows over your fingertips.

My eyes know nothing except through a dirty glass pane.

I see, but I don't hear.

I see, but I don't smell.

I see, but I don't feel.

I see, but I have yet to live.
