The world will perish in a plague!

Our lives will fall apart in fire!

Long days of horror lie ahead,

Far from what we’d desire.

More things for us to do:

Follow the curve to its peak,

Hope for a flatter line,

Never retrace our steps.

We balance over the abyss,

Fire in our blood one instant

Fades in a painful moment.

Life’s becoming colorless.

A century behind in time,

We were consigned as captives,

But hurry, look outside!

A ray of hope rebuilds our lives.

I wrote this piece in December, as 2020 was coming to an end, trying to capture my own thoughts throughout the pandemic and the hope surrounding the possiblity of a vaccine.
