Poem: #GAD for all

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

When all you’re worst imaginings

Become everyday happenings

It’s the new normal they say.

Yet despite all that worry

You still feel unprepared

for a crisis that is shared.

It’s hard to feel compassion when

You’re drowning in comparison

Of boats, storms, weather and silver linings.

Time to refocus, reset, reawaken, rest

Except we’ve done all that

Learned the hard way to value

The important things, the who in our lives.

Because we nearly lost it all once before

We’ve rebuilt revised reassessed

We’re trying our very best

Furiously running just to stand still.
