There's a quiet that has settled in your bones
It's simple and unassuming but doesn't live alone
Fear snuck in under the cover of night
Covered with cloak that hid its eyes from the light
Worry tagged along close to Fear's heel
Shaken by all that has come to be real
Despair slipped itself through the door
Deliberately tracking dark prints on the floor
Panic was next to arrive on the scene
Stumbling across the threshold being chased by something unseen
It was anger who thrust itself through the gloom
Snarling and baring its teeth daring anyone in the room
Huddled together their voices fill your head
A cacophony of emotions emboldened by dread
"Stop the Spread"
"Flatten the Curve"
"Thousands are Dead"
Again and again
Again and again and again
Destruction Pain Suffering
When will it end?
Suddenly there's a knocking at the door
somehow inside you there's room for more
They radiate warmth and carry hands filled with blue sky
And promises of a world after all of this has passed by
A new start
A second chance begins to build homes in your soul
After weathering this storm
After weathering this storm all that's left standing
After weathering this storm all that's left standing within you is
