My Expressions

We stay away from the bane,
To prevent all that pain,
Barely staying sane,
Finding someone we can blame.


People panicking everywhere,
Birthdays ruined that’s not fair,
It seems like summer just got ruined,
Everybody now so prudent.


Home seems like a prison,
The whole world in indecision,
It all seems like a pointless mission,
How did we end up in this position?


I know it seems all too overrated,
These precautions get so overheated,
Some say it’s just a cold,
But there’s so much we are not told.


People dying everywhere,
Some passing with no say,
Some not getting needed care,
When it’s more than they can bare.


So we must play our part,
It’s the least we can do,
And keep those lost in our heart,
While brave souls fight this flu.
