My Life in Corona Social Imposed Distancing

A Poem Memoir

By Leah Mesuk, 12

Every day is a struggle to remember what is going on outside
People dying others suffer
Me, here, asking to go swim in a pool
I feel selfish
But also very lucky

Struggles define the human race
All of us
Even you
With mind disorders
Physical disorders
Problems at home
With bullying at school
We all have problems
Even though at times
Not visible with the human eye

People may take out their problems on others
Like the Chinese Hate Crimes
Because it is said they started the Coronavirus
That doesn’t make it right

Let all of us join together to
End this fight
And win it right



Leah Musak, 12
Manhattan, NY
