In a world where everything seems to go wrong
A virus outbreak
Schools shut down
Businesses and workplaces barely surviving
Stuck in a house all the time
Physically needing work also
And where are we?
Are we all struggling?
Stuck in this nightmare of a reality
What can we do?
Go outside and take a walk maybe,
But that won’t change what is happening
Go to the store?
Get lectured by people for not wearing your mask correctly?
Or maybe your the one lecturing
Everything is so strange
Almost a year has passed and what has been accomplished?
Gaining weight maybe
I look forward to the time when this will all be over
When I can go see my friends
Not having to wonder if it is safe to shake someone’s hand
I look forward to seeing a movie in the theater
The amazing smell of the popcorn
I can almost smell it
But I can’t
I simply can’t
And neither can you
We can’t do these things we simply wish we could do
We could riot and protest
But what good would that do?
The only thing I look forward to these days is the sun
The sun is something no matter how crazy the world is around me
Always comes back
It goes away
But always returns
That is something that i look forward to
Because it is something that i can rely on that will never be taken away from me
The sun brings joy to all
You see during these times you can cry and pout
Or you can find something that can’t be taken away and be grateful and happy
I choose the sun
What can’t be taken from you?
What will you choose to be happy about?
I choose the sun, because
I choose to be happy
