trying to accept this strange new norm
such a radical change
as our life is reformed

this dark shadow grows with fear
and numbers mount it becomes clear
more and more life’s are taken
and there’s not much we can do
except stay inside
and stay glued to the news

I’m trying hard to pretend
that it will be ok
but part of me is angry
at the how COVID 19
has changed our normal life’s way

I know how to handle all this stress
and I have all the inner tools
and I’m meditating and writing
I’m being thankful too

but there’s a part of me
I recognize and feel
that is torn apart
by this new norms reality

my heart and soul go out
by what those nurses and doctors
trying to save lives as they go about
their work conditions are so horrible
it makes me freak out

so I write what I can and hope
that those out of work can get by
until the time this pandemic
and the crises dies

this new norm is changing our lives
but there’s a more powerful force
that directs the power of good in life
that still finds
the power within us to inspire

and that spark of light may flicker
but it holds a Spirit shines so bright
as I pray to God to help us get by
and find a way to deal with this strange new norm
