#30: Bumps in the Road

It’s the third year
and while everything feels the same, things are different.
We’ve all felt pain and sadness, joy and relief,
but we’ve stayed resilient, true and strong.
Every time we think it’s the end or that we need to give up,
life surprises us.
I open my window and can see the sunlight shining through;
my plants are green and vibrant and call out to me.
As I water them, a sense of calm envelopes me
and the world feels right again.
the pandemic may or may not stop,
but human power is steadfast
and is all around us.
I’m not the same person I was three years ago.
The bumps in the road have taught me
that there’s still a path on the other side;
all you’ve got to do is jump over the bump.
One last thing!
