Blessings in Disguise

August 19, 2021

I remember a time not long ago
when all of our lives came to a halt 
cars stopped roaring down the highway
children's screams could not be heard atop rollercoasters 
grocery store shelves were bare with dust

My family was at home
and so were the rest of the families of the world
it happened before the blink of one eye
with a flip of a page, history had been made for good
one day I was laughing with my friends
about something probably stupid and naive 
the next day I was talking with my classmates through a screen 

It felt weird but it soon became normal
It was hard but we found ways to still have fun
It was annoying but I learned new ways to cope with my feelings
we were forced to find new activities we could fill up our time with
we were drawn to our siblings because who else was 
in the standstill, the frozen world we were feeling out

I laughed with my family
I argued still but got through it
We were forced to be together but we managed to more than survive 
we came out stronger, closer than ever

I believe this storm was sent out a way for a reason
a chance for us to really appreciate one another
when before maybe we were too busy
this gave us time
to LOVE
to LAUGH
to LEARN
to THRIVE
