Life Often Unaware

Loneliness often creeps in

And surrounds me unexpectedly.

Sadness often settles in

And weighs me down slowly.

A sense of meaninglessness sometimes reaches in

And consumes my focus relentlessly.

Untethered anxiety draws me in

And somehow ties me up mercilessly.

 

In these uncertain times

Let me — let us all– remember

To draw our loved ones in tenderly.

Let us try to give support

To one another consistently,

Even if it must be remotely.

For as we have an opportunity

To unite around a common fear

Remember we each live often unaware

Of the wear and tear

Of the daily internal struggles

Which have gotten so many of us here.

Let us just be there

In a way we may have not learned to be before.
