Refocused by Circumstance
Refocused by circumstance not by choice
A virus attempting to steal my happiness
smother my dreams and quiet my voice.
Things are slowly falling apart causing separation ,
depression and leaving a hole inside my heart.
Senior graduation and funerals we couldn't attend
while church services abruptly came to an end.
Family life has been refocused using Facebook
twitter and zoom while we all pray
this pandemic will be over soon.
Refocused on the circumstance with determination
not to let this virus be my final destination.
Not letting Covid keep me bound
by the havoc it has caused
I choose to remain vigilant and hopeful
while my life is on pause.
Refocused to bind doubt and fear
as I anxiously look forward to a happier new year.
