Under the same sky

Let's meet again

It may not be today

Neither tomorrow

But I know

We can

We will

We must

 

 

I wrote this short poem thinking of people whom I can't see, hug, or held hand with because of the pandemic. When this pandemic started and a community quarantine was implemented, I tried to live my life normally. I'm trying to be as productive as possible. But the thought of not being able to do the things we normally do without the fear of getting sick slowly creeps inside of me.

I'm really grateful that my family and friends are all healthy. But there were days that I feel sad, anxious, or worried. Sometimes I'm confused. There are a lot of questions going on in my head. Then one day, I came across a Facebook post that helped me understand why I'm feeling those emotions. Here's the link.

So please remember, our mental and emotional health is as important as our physical health. it's okay to be sad, anxious, worried, or confused. It's okay to be unproductive. We always need to acknowledge and accept the feelings and emotions that we have.

I believe that all of these shall pass. That one day, we will meet again, and we will talk, and hug and held each others' hands. One day let's meet again.

Dear Isha,
This is such a loving post, and seriously is just what I needed today as I adjust to what is beginning to feel like such a long time with these movement restrictions. Thanks for the link, too, it is brilliantly expressed. I look forward to the day when we can move about again, and on the rare and wonderful occasion even meet in person.

Isha Hi :) I also believe that all of these shall pass. I also believe To everything there is a season,
and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to count as lost, a time to keep and a time to discard, a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
