Pandemic Poem

What should I do

Should I be lazy

Should I be active

Should I take a chance

Should I play it safe

There’s too many screens

Not enough people

There’s no proper goodbyes

No proper greetings

No proper gatherings

I can’t do this any longer

I can’t play by the rules any longer

But then I hear something

But what is it that I hear

It’s the sound of laughter

It’s the sound of love

I have support from my family

I have love from my family

I can go on

I will go on
