Pandemic Scared

Photo by Criativithy on

Our World is upside down,

Pandemic upside down.

Everywhere people have gotten sick and many have died.

Lessons to be learned but many refusing to be schooled.

Are people this stupid, ignorant or foolish?

If wearing a mask saves lives, why oh, why not wear one?

Sure its hot and masks make it hard for me to breathe.

But if they save lives ; make fewer sick, what’s wrong with that?

Is your life worth saving?

Or mine?

I’ve become a shut-in for most of my day.

Going out for walk at 4:30 am, when its still dark,

Getting everything delivered,

Doing everything by phone or online.

Driving in my car because it’s the safest place for me to be,

And, visits to my Mom.

Doctor offices are scary,

With all the precautions and exposure to not just Covid-19.

Pandemic crazy.

Pandemic turning our world upside down.

I don’t know how much more of this I can stand.

Its hard and very restricting.

Is my life worth all this isolation?

Don’t know anymore,

When just 6 months ago, I was praying to die.

Now not depressed, I don’t know what I want anymore.

I just don’t want to be put on a ventilator or get sick.

If a mask is hard to breathe wearing,

What would Covid-19 be like with my ability to breathe?


Be safe, live your best life as best you can,
