Destination

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Last night I had a dream that I was free

falling from a star and onto the Earth’s surface.

I remember the air pressure knocking out my senses

every couple of seconds as I would try to stay aware and

awake. After seeing the ground, I clenched my eyes shut in

full acceptance. As I relinquished control, the velocity driving

my body began to slow till I became entirely suspended within

the Earth’s atmosphere. Unable to grasp the situation, my cell

started to ring and so I reached for my pocket and answered

it, ‘rerouting your destination.’ Instead of falling, I started

moving in reverse. Back to the star from which I came.
