2020, Foretold to be a treasure chest of human desire, New hopes and dreams await in this decade filled with glittery graduation parties, newlywed bliss, promenade rendezvous, and snap-worthy playdates, Bustling careers and holidays full of cheer. Firm or friendly handshakes, tight or tender embraces, Soulful voices lifting melodic hymns from the pews, Cheering our children at Friday night games, Celebrating together anything worthy of praise. January 21st, an announcement was made, Without preparation, the world was unmade, A world teetering on life and death, You were swayed by social media, as many lay alone, as they breathed their last breaths. Is it a pandemic? Syndemic? Should you wear facemasks or not? How do you define love? The Forget-Me-Not. The views from a luxury home, Or the warmth of a cozy nest that is dirty from playful toes, Vacations from your stimulus, Or friendships that develop from interpersonal relationships. Put down your selfish and anxious way of thinking, Love freely with an open embrace, You can hear the birds chirping, You can kiss your sweetheart and give God thanks for the gift of life. Today has come, Tomorrow can never be guaranteed, So, love now with all you have, Express yourself in other ways besides chat. It is better to listen, Than to speak, Try to turn the other cheek, LOVE NEVER FAILS.
