I feel like I'm stuck in a real Hollywood sci-fi-movie

like Outbreak or Contagion,

only it is the real deal we are dealing with,

an unseen enemy we all have become,

in one way or another, afraid of.

We are all going through a painful time

and are truly not prepared whatsoever for what's in store.

Everyone's pain, loneliness, fear and anger

are far too strong to ignore.

So many questions keep going through so many minds,

but few if any answers can we really truly find.

Our politicians from both parties

can't seem to agree on anything,

leaving our country with false hope.

The problem is that false hope

can be a very dangerous thing.

They say this is the new normal,

but I don't see anything close to normal about it.

So much death, quarantine, stay-at-home orders put into place,

ordered to wear masks to cover our face.

Restaurants, schools, churches and more have been banned,

no more hugs or shaking anyone's hands.

We older adults are told we’re much more likely

to become seriously affected by the CORONAVlRUS.

Our entire lives have been changed.
