New Normal

An x-ray view of what was before while looking for the after now Like a resurrection and afterlife on some biblical prophecy Be aware on the conscious for its under attack by malware soon to fully develop into a spyware Your mental is like your software Operating system needs an upgrade This virus just gave it a reboot With simple task manager for putting on a mask Betterment of the self is a daily update Because the past is what you have lived and it all crashed But we need to understand that our attention on affection is being hacked Being scanned everyday as we usher into the era of the cyborg Some lifestyles we need to abort Social interaction is digitalized friends are stranger on social media Here was the birth of social distancing industrialization sign in globalization to confinement Can’t we see the danger!?, people have become invisible Let put aside propaganda its not in this piece’s agenda In an atmosphere filled with uncertainty dwells fear of change with a wave of intolerance A dominant experience at the moment is sense of grief notion of sadness, despair, helplessness, powerlessness and anger Fragment of blame, echo chambers of many Negative escalation of human degradation Issue is on face mask as the color of the skin Being policed by leaders with empty promises It feels like the pandemic took a 360 degrees turn to make it a worldwide web In some ways it has come full circle back to localization, national budget and personal introspect Everyone is loading their data refresh the mind on the page what does history show Before the hand shakes, people kissed to greet Here we tap our feet Gathering set the tone of joy Togetherness was a remedy now in a memory We just have to stick as family unfamiliar at a point of acceptance becomes familiar
