Pandemic (A Poem)


It may seem as if we were never quite prepared for this -

this pandemic,

this panic

we wish we'd skipped,

the possibility of falling sick

(well God forbid) -

it may seem as if we were never quite prepared for this,

but not until we realize

that a mother's heart is always prepared

for more reasons to protect her child,

and somewhere in between running out of things to do,

somewhere in between wondering

if we should stock up our favourite boxes of comfort food,

we'll be glad to discover

that we have been given opportunities

to also stock up

on kindness,

compassion,

self-care,

a ton of memories we will build within these four walls,

and most of all,

love

to keep each other safe.

And with a little hope,

these are the things you will find overflowing on the aisle,

and these are the things

that will get us through.
