“Wanderlust” by Olivia Collins
Over a million cities
7.442 billion people
6 continents I have not set foot on
193 countries I have not been to
Over a million cities, my eyes have not seen
7 billion people I have not met
Yet I am confined in one continent
Stuck in one country
Stuck in the same city
Stuck in my the comfort of my own home
My own mind
My own life
Stuck, unable to fulfill my wanderlust.
