But one day, as I was walking through the faceless crowd, something caught my eye. It filled my vision with brightness that I had forgot existed. Its beauty was instantly intoxicating. I weaved anxiously through the crowd, unable to get a clear view. It hid and I could feel its enjoyment at my distress and urgency. But I searched nonetheless. For that one quick view had sparked something deep inside that had been lost for so long. I tried to step out from the crowd to get a better view. To find what my heart had long been aching for. But the crowd swirled around, thicker. I turned around, trying to catch one more glimpse. But it had disappeared from view. But with that glimpse, instantly I was changed. I couldn't go back to the life I had previously been satisfied by. I realized in that brief moment that I wanted more. And a life spent searching was better than one in ignorance.
