GloPoWriMo – Day 1

Troubling Times

01-13-19_1-08-02 PM

I wake up in the morning to hear the news of brand new cases

I hear of people going to stores and buying more than necessary

I see people complaining about being locked in their homes,

About the lack of social contact

Fearing about losing their loved ones

Believing that this is a sign of the times.


All while I have peace in my heart

For if it’s my time, let it be

I don’t fear for my family

I enjoy my own company

A brighter tomorrow, yet to see

This is not the end for me.

Author’s Notes: It’s GloPoWriMo, a poem a day to celebrate April during National Poetry Month. I’m a little late to the party, but really wanted to join this time! I hope you enjoy reading a daily prompt from me.

Daily Prompt: “write a self-portrait poem in which you make a specific action a metaphor for your life – one that typically isn’t done all that often, or only in specific circumstances,” from Na/GloPoWriMo.
