in versus out

You know, how people get out?
Rowing on lakes,
climbing mountains,
trekking across moors,
surfing the waves,
golden hair and ruddy cheeks.

I can’t do it.
A simple walk is effort enough.
Wrapped up, boots on,
off to the shop or off-license,
let alone out in the woods.

I’d love to be that person.
I wonder what my life might be like.
But when even a visit to the cinema,
is too much…

You see,
this is how far away I am,
from the lakes.

From the mountains,
the countryside.

Maybe, things could have been different.
