What makes lockdown sanity

What makes ‘lockdown sanity’?

Not violence!

Not marches, protests, mass dissent.

Not profanity!

To ease relief,

Suspend belief.

Don’t dwell on ‘normal’…….

There is no ‘normal’.

Take something small,

In other times not even on the list,

So trival, dismissed,

And make it big.

See the insignificant,

And sweep away the mist,

Make it magnificent.

A wild rose that blooms on a winter’s day.

Be yourself,

Be content with who you are…….

Not where you are,

Not what you are, 

Not how you are,

But who you are,

For this is your new life’s stage.

From here you rise,

No matter what your age!
