who lives here?

Inside

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

"Stay home"

"Stop the Spread"

"Flatten the Curve"

"Thousands are Dead"

Again

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

Hope

Love

Faith

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

grateful.
