Another year gone by, One that won’t soon be forgotten. Not because it was a year to remember, At least not like the others. More like the year to forget. We’ll recall 2020 for what it did to us. Not the year, but the virus. We should endeavour to be better… Better prepared. Stronger. Kinder.
We saw blue skies. We saw gray clouds. There were dark moments. And happy moments. We witnessed celestial spectacles And down-to-earth tragedies. Yet, maybe in all this chaos We found ways to slow down To look around and really see All of the colours on display Throughout the day…
The year 2020 was definitely a strange one… It started pretty much like the previous year but things changed in a hurry at the end of March: hand-washing, mask-wearing, social-distancing, isolating… The words were everywhere: pandemic, COVID, coronavirus… Then more words: frontline workers, healthcare workers, essential workers, heroes… Chaos. Summer provided somewhat of a reprieve. Then came a COVID-19 autumn with its lockdowns and escalating numbers. More chaos. I noticed that even the animals looked at us kinda strange, almost asking “Eh! What’s going on?“ Yes, it has been a strange year.
It seems like I've been here before
I can't remember when
But I have this funny feeling
That we'll all be together again
No straight lines make up my life
And all my roads have bends
There's no clear-cut beginnings
And so far no dead-ends
