Imagine A World Reversed
Imagine a world where everything is reversed. The sky's the ground and the ground is the sky. I’ll always remember what the world had been like for me before that. But now I’m stuck in my bedroom, feeling trapped and lonely. I hope this madness will end. I wish everything
would be reversed…
I decided to go outside my living room, looking for something to do. I tiptoed down in the dusty, creepy, old basement. As I walked to the workshop, I spotted an unknown machine. I thought it was a toy at first, but when I got closer and closer I heard a strange buzzing noise.
Paralyzed I stood there shocked. The buzzing stopped suddenly. With a deep sigh, I reset my mind. I slowly returned upstairs trying not to be distracted by the machine.
The next morning, I went back down to the basement and there I found the strange machine. I tried to turn the machine on but there were no buttons, I tried breaking it but that was no use either. I stood there thinking, confused about what to do but then… a glittering orb appeared out of nowhere. It opened a portal to an unknown world. I tried to escape but I was slowly pulled towards the portal…
I see a wonderful world. It feels like a dream. The ocean breeze touches my face and the soft silky golden sand sinks under my feet. The crystal clear water shimmers in the sun. I wonder to myself - where am I? I look around, and dive further into the jungle next to the island. Dusk broke and it got darker. I soon found shelter and rested. Minutes felt like hours and hours felt like days.
The next morning I heard another buzzing sound. The same orb appeared and asked me if I wanted to leave. Excitedly I said, “Yes!” I woke up feeling dizzy, the machine was no longer there… I walked up the stairs realising I was at home… relieved I went back to my bedroom to take a snooze.
Safe at last…
