Kinda' wanna start this whole day over
    I feel heavy, kinda like a rock over a cliff, a boulder
On my shoulders, this pandemic
Got me down
    My words have hidden, in dark corners of my mind
I can't see them, until my inner light begins to shine
Until then I will lay here and rest
Giving me time to recoup for my best
Foot forward, pressing on towards my goals
Times are changing, but for whom does the bell tolls
Social distancing, six feet apart,
"Spread your legs", "get my ID out the car"
No flu signs, coughing dry, my heart is heavy from so many death goodbyes
Support black, support local,
Trying to stay afloat, with all the slack
Leash on life takes a turn for the worst, hoping my protective bubble never burst
If it does, the air will slip away, and I will have blown another day
