From my 2020 Journal. Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon of trying to give us encouraging words and uplifting things to focus on during our forced isolation from COVID-19, and I’ve purposefully tried to stay away from the topic on my blogs. We’ve heard and seen enough for a lifetime on the news and in social media to bring fear and anxiety into our hearts. I am not afraid, so don’t tell me not to be afraid! But then it hit me. I’m may not be afraid, but I did identify some worry. Oops. So here’s my response.
Is like a worm,
Weaseling its way into my brain,
A virus that goes viral,
With nothing to stop the corruption.
Too late to quarantine,
It’s already done its damage.
All I can do is holler for help and pray and praise
To arrest it in its tracks and
To wash away the filth of the residue
Ahhh, sweet peace.
