My lockdown

I can see people queuing outside Supermarkets , standing 2m. apart,

Food shelves were empty like classrooms ,panic at the start.

Seeing family upon a screen,

Friends from school you haven't seen.


Listening to the sound of silence , wishes as night , 

People all in their house , holding mask on the mouth .

The sound of people busily buying food,

Famalies spending time together lightening the mood .


The smell of fear from people not wanting to leave their homes, 

Staying in their gardens , talking from their homes!

Helping in the kitchen , it smells like chocolate cake,

Dreaming of all the Easter cards and cookies we could make. 


The worry in my belly , struggling to know what is going on, 

Hoping that my grandma and grandad won't be gone outside.

My heart beating quickly deep within my chest,

Thinking About friends and family as well as the rest. 


Licking delicious chocolate from my fingers , as an early easter treat,

Like the frantic feeling when you want much to eat.


I may be feeling lonely like a house on a tall hill,

But I will stay inside forever to stop other getting ill.
