The Year 2020


The Year 2020

The year senior cap and gowns got taken away, having a graduation only if they were lucky.
Important milestones were stolen and we can never get back.
The year the people of our great nation trapped inside their homes because of Covid-19, a virus that could not be stopped.
Although that must have been forgotten at some point because people of all race, gender and religion were out burning and looting peoples businesses.
2020
People have a right to stand up for George Floyd and other people of color deaths and peacefully protest, but is that really what it was about when these people took a protest and turned into a chaotic mess?
Now I’m not going to lie that cop did in fact crush George Floyd’s neck and he was left with no life and no defense.
But who took the lively hood away from people who had nothing and now are just left no sense…no sense of hope for our nation.
2020
It was the year we watched our economy decline and people struggle left and right all while the rich sat in their houses on the hill telling us that we are all going to be just fine.
Fine without our jobs.
Fine with the dangers of the riots.
Fine with having to go out and risk the chance of catching a virus that we all seemed to have forgotten about, because if we haven’t then why are we making things worse and not putting our nation’s health and safety first?
Sometimes I just don’t understand 2020
