2020 -The Season of Sadness and Change

2020-This was the year for clear vision
that’s what we all said on January 1, 2020
this would be the year of change
and in many ways it has been.
a change so great none of us could imagine-
so many things we’ve never seen before
and hope to never see again
but history always repeats itself
and everyday people die
gasping for air
for breath
on ventilators and face down in the street
with necks on knees
it is too profound
too much hurt to bear
too hard to even think quietly about
much less to speak out loud
we will put it in the history books though
and what will we say?
2020 -the season of sadness and change
