An invisible enemy has changed our lives. Lives
lost, all too soon. Soon
slinks fear, that we contain in isolation. Isolation
bringing bitter loneliness; thoughts echoing. Echoing
around the world, clouds of chaos and uncertainty. Uncertainty
in each other, infected with suspicion. Suspicion
of one another, seems like our jobs. Jobs
vanishing, economy at a standstill.
Still, hope is in our nature. Nature
is renewing, the world is clean and quiet. Quiet
acts of kindness, binding us together. Together
we lead, enlightened by our journey.

Emily Collins says
Wow, this was an amazing story! I loved the way you didn’t just talk about the isolation and sadness, but also about hope and kindness helping to rebuild us. It was a great poem, one I won’t forget.
