My Covid Hope

Corona and Covid disrupted this year. Leaving the world confounded; paralyzed with fear. Lives lost in droves;too much sorrow to count. Everyone shrouded under storm clouds of doubt. Sanitized, distanced with no social contact. Not shaking hands is deemed a charitable act. Coughing,sneezing, wheezing, overheating. Everyday is a gift, can you feel your heart beating? Being unemployed during this time is a fight to survive. But one must thank God that they are alive. Appreciating food more than ever before. Being with little to none makes you value it more. Freedom of movement;a basic human right. Forcibly taken like a thief in the night. Police presence heightened. Everyone's frightened. By the cynicism, suspicion and caution on the rise. Looking at eachother with mistrustful eyes. These masks stifles feelings and breathing. Faith is being tested; emotions are seething. Facing trials as humans seems to be our lot in life. Somehow I see light amid all this darkness and strife. Hope springs eternal as the world is now one. Friends, family, strangers united under the sun. With faith, hope and prayer the world is now stronger. So long Covid; you're with us no longer.

Angelique, you’ve said this very well. “ Being with little to none makes you value it more.” Yes, we are at “bare tack.” I no longer care whether I dye my hair. I’m thankful for toilet paper (giving it a “charmin” hug) Thankful for food, no longer being able to get everything I want when I want it. Finally found rye flour. Cooking more for my “honey.” God bless you! xx
