Poetry

Quarantine

I was forced into this

Peace

A peace I didn’t know I

yearned

Meals with my family

everyday

Many beautiful lessons both

taught and learned

I think it was the

Afternoon that we all lied

on our backs

Watching the clouds above

It was in that moment that

I realized what peace was

really made of

Of stagnation

Of stillness

Of feeling my breath in and out

The peace that I was once

forced into

Is now the peace I never

Want to be without
