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.
It wasn’t that long ago when people freely showed their faces.
Now, they’re covered and hidden behind masks.
When will be able to freely show our smiles again?
There’s a lot of world up in my head
A lot more than the things I’ve said.
So many things I’ve thought up and imagined
Some are still waiting to be awakened.
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.
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?
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
The world stood still, didn’t it?
It grew quiter
It turned slower too
Maybe it’s trying to heal itself
The moon was big and bright yellow
And around it was a halo.
It kept a watchful eye on me, as I walked that early morning.
Music was the universal language for both of them.
So they let it tell what they could not say outright.
The night fell silent as the moon rose alone
The stars did not come out, they left the moon on its own.
