Lock Down: A Poem
Vyona on our recent lock down. Sometimes it just feels like the 'new normal...'

Lock down, everyone in the same situation

No one can go out

Only for essentials

Just to the shop for food

Get to the shop a line queuing

Social distancing a new thing

2 metres apart

People with masks

A new norm? Could it be?

 

Lock down, everyone stay in the same situation

Can’t go out unless you exercise for an hour, in your local neighbourhood

Your home is your world

Your t.v. your companion

Your phone calls a connection

Video calling a comfort

Wifi in use, welcome to buffering

A new norm? Could it be?

 

Lock down, everyone in the same situation

At home the four walls are your world

You live alone, bliss for a while, then despair

You live with family, hesitation, frustration, despair, appreciation..

You live in a house share, unknown, hesitation, coexistence, cooperation

Outside space, a garden luxury

No garden, caged in, no air

Home deliveries an abundance an every day occurrence

A new norm? Could it be?

 

Lock down, everyone in the same situation

New beginnings, time to complete things you don’t usually have time to do.

Time to assess, time to start something new

Art, music, cooking, learn a new language, gardening

Time to set goals and achieve them

Time to organize and throw out the unnecessary

No excuses, don’t doubt yourself

The time is now, no need to wait, just do.

A new norm? Could it be?
