Dark Hole of the Pandemic

When will it end?

Dear source of all,

Help us cope. We have fallen into a deep and dark hole.

Over one year since the pandemic began, it continues to grind on, crushing souls along the way.

We are masked up at a virtual costume ball, where dancing isn’t allowed, smiles can’t be seen and no one is permitted to leave.

Covid has snatched family members and friends. Some died, alone and in hospitals, leaving us shattered and lonesome.

Feelings of sadness and loss, isolation and pain, seldom abate.

Nowhere to go, nothing special to do. Waiting for the vaccine so we can live again.

Waiting for immunization. Then we can see family. Then we can hug and kiss. Then we can be joyful again.
