We All Remember That Sigh Of Relief

We all remember that sigh of relief. When we flop on the ground, whether it be a forest of grass, the floor of our room, or the coarse sand on a beach. We all close our eyes and breathe deeply, letting out a long sigh. As our hearts are full of hope and possibilities. Ways to enjoy the summer at last.

Don’t lie to me though. Do you truly feel free? When you curse your workload, your responsibilities, your mediocre uneventful pitiful life. Do you truly feel yourself in the summer?

Aren’t you just pretending to be free from your prison?
