Lockdown by 5th Year student

No alarms to pierce the sleep,

Lots of worries buried deep,

No empty nest of fledglings flown,

All busy bees must work from home.

All boundary walls are 2k wide,

Virtual prison, must stay inside.

All loving hugs from granny ends,

No fist bump, high fives with our friends. 

WhatsApp, Insta, Zoom, TikTok,

Tweeting teens dont ever stop.

New routines with different flavour,

Time at last for moments to savour. 

Lockdown blues have made us pause

To consider change to how life was,

Slow down, breathe, notice, pray,

Have gratitude for every day.
