Driving home and I got the news
School is canceled, it gave me the blues
Wish I could push days faster
But, the only things moving are my shoes
I should be screaming into a pillow
And I’m hoping that I’m dreaming
In a daze, I keep moving
Trying to reach a word to describe
But. I. Can’t.
Wake up. Breathe. School. Sleep
A never-ending cycle that I wish I could get beneath
Trying. Pushing. Perseverance.
Every day is the same
Why make your bed when nobody’s coming?
Read. Read. Reading.
The thing I once loved, now I’ve stopped doing
Dream. Dream, they say but how can you dream
When you don’t have enough space?
When will this change?
Will my life ever be the same?
Our new normal is being home every day
And I wish it would change!
Questions all in my head.
It is like my feet are lead,
The way I stay in one place
Trying to, trying to
Handle this with grace
Peace. Peace comes at night.
