Unhinged

No ratings yet.

I sit in my balcony during lockdown,

I hear the birds singing .

I just wonder how lucky they are, 

They can fly as much as possible 

And poor me stuck in lockdown.

I sit in my balcony during lockdown,

And imagine how I controlled my fluctuating emotions during these times.

I thank my friends who kept me alive,

Speaking to them was like reviving the soul.

I sit in my balcony during lockdown 

And remember how zoom calls, weekly quizzes, socially distanced friendship dates

Keep people like me away from loneliness.

I sit in my balcony during lockdown,

In the face of adversity,  I wonder 

How I managed to find a new blossoming friendship.

I sit in my balcony during lockdown,

And say thanks to all who gave me 

Positives of lockdown.
