social distancing sounds cool, but for those who struggle with disconnection
fear of connection leaves them longing to break out of prison of their own minds
I have seen 4 friends die this past year to drug related causes, and one friend died because his lungs failed him by the dreaded Covid-19
when I was 19 I didn’t have a care in the world, and now I am paralyzed by unseen enemy that lurks in the air
yet life goes on. vaxxed and boostered, I muster up the courage to face crowds masked and sometimes unmasked.
with my trusty dog, I brave the cold and walk into the unknown.
still somedays I just want to cry, but also give thanks that I have not died. I am still here left standing, when so many have fade away.
I keep walking the path, even though I know not where it will lead…
