I used to live in a high rise block of apartments, where many families lived on top of each other, and side by side each other. I could hear their talks, laughs, cries and expressions. I could smell all the emissions from the large amounts of cars that used to drive past my residence. I could see the smog, on most of the mornings. I could feel the soap that used to run down my drains, smell the cigarettes that my owners smoked, hear all the noises all day long. All of a sudden I found myself in this bliss . . . . . where I can hear silence . . . . I can hear the birds, the wind, the crawls of living things! I can breathe fresh air but I cannot understand why the green grass, the living things around me keep looking so sadly at me!
