Close your eyes.
Picture the world we lived in,
the one we used to call our home.

Imagine a time we
would desperately claw to.
One where
as we stand amidst
the threat of a virus, against
we are one.

Finally a purpose to move forwards–
A light at the end
of the tunnel. This
is only the beginning.

Now open.
Try not to stare too intensely,
for the ever growing flames 
might clutter 
your thoughts as well.
