A year and a half

9BBB6ABE-ADE8-4D79-97F9-DA7C8A3020F9

We’ve had an unusual year and a half

All the distancing

All the worrying

All the isolation

All the confusion

All the triumphs and failures

All of us pulling together most times

But some being more lucky in their access to what they need

Our world is not operating as a whole yet

We are still segmented into countries and tribes

Otherwise we would probably be in a different place now

Will we learn our lesson?

I’m not sure

Our nationalism has a strong hold on us

In a world that operates as a whole

We insist on only looking out only for ourselves

There is mistrust

There is lack of compassion

There is lack of unity

What is for sure it that now to solve our problems 

We need to work together 

Today’s world works as a unit

And the sooner we figure that out the better
