I accept that they may feel lonely
The constant reminder from the media that they are isolated
Alone in their puddle of thoughts
Suddenly drowning in their echoes of silence
Against all odds I am managing just fine
A stream of thoughts flowing all day
Nothing to block my mind from floating away
Not today, anyway
My thoughts are not all positive
I am unbalanced and unhinged
As the framework to my body and soul is missing
The frame being my family
We're being fed lie after lie after lie
Time after time after time
Hearing repetitive sighs and cries and "my oh my"
When all we are asking, is why?
We acknowledge the need to stay inside,
And we comply.
To those who want to risk the lives of loved ones,
Are you wanting those to die?
