Imagine An Upside Down World
My world is perfect as it is. I hope nothing changes. As I rest on my black, puffy and warm bed I feel odd, like something is not right. I wonder, what's missing? I tiptoe outside. The backdoor closes with terror. Why is it so quiet? I push myself with all my strength through the powerful air. It's like the wind is telling me not to go there…
The tall buildings engulf me, the further I walk the louder it gets. It was so loud that there was screaming, crying and panic- the noise was deafening. People shout at me to “look up!” I see it in shock…
Skyscrapers, cars and roads are not supposed to be there. I’m worried it’s going to fall. I'm too young to die! I see a round, hard and bumpy object. I feel like it's a rock from space. I hope it's not dangerous- I wonder where it's from? I look around to find some clues… my legs start to shake in fear.I give up, the pressure is too much, so I throw the rock away. Suddenly it glows right in front of my eyes.
It gets brighter and brighter as I go closer but the light blinds me! I sprint away in fright as fast as possible. I look back but I bump into something tall and hard as a rock. I look around me, a tall brick building engulfs me, cars race down the street and people talk to one another. All of a sudden the world is back to normal. But where has the glowing rock gone?
I hope that does not happen again.
