I’m scared to go out…

Because I don’t want to get it
Because that would mean I help spread it
But there’s no one else who is able to do it
And supplies need to be replenished.
So I wear the mask and say a prayer
That I may not be included in the statistics
And that this sickness, never touches my family.

I Rise With The Moon

A friend of mine posted a photo of the super pink moon and captioned it, “I rise with the moon”. I thought that it would be a great title for a poem. So here goes…

The sun dips in the horizon while the moon is slowly rising

And with it my soul awakens.

The darkness stretches, as do I…

The world would have been blanketed by darkness except the moon was shining bright.

I shine my own smile back to the moon and together, hand in hand, we light up the night sky.

What Do You Miss?

I miss hugging the people that are close to me. Right now, we have to keep our distance.

Even a simple high five has to be avoided.

Once normalcy returns, would you please give me a hug?

Hello earthlings! How’s quarantine (For those placed on quarantine)? Here in Cebu, Philippines, we are now on Enhanced Community Quarantine. Good thing I still get to work from home so I don’t have to worry about going to and from work.

How are things where you are? What do you miss?

Stuck Together

Let’s get stuck together from afar

Let’s do our morning routine a bit differently

Let’s stay indoors and enjoy the moment

Let’s do our part to keep each other safe
