wished

Be careful what you wish for.
Some wished to stay home.
Some wished to be homeschooled.
Others just wished to sleep in.

But is this what you wanted?
Did you want everyone to be stuck at home,
antisocial?
Did you want your little sister to be stuck using your
mom's computer for her zoom meetings?
Did you want to be down to your last 6 rolls 
of toilet paper?

What did you want?
Is this what you dreamt of, 
far before these 62 days of quarantine?

Stuck at home?
Sure you wanted to have school in your room.
But not like this.

Every time I see the clock at 11:11,
I make a wish.

Masked

The elastic rubbing your ear
giving you red lines.
Your chin itching,
forcing you to lift the mask up.
After you sneeze,
the inside of your mask stinks,
making it hard to keep on.

But keep it on.

If you don't want to wear a mask,
stay home.
You don't have to say yes
when your parent asks
you to come on a walk.

But don't let the fear of COVID-19 overcome
your happiness.

You can go in your yard, 
and pretend nobody else exists.
There's nothing that can harm you when
you're safe in you're own place.
You can do art in the unfinished basement.
You can just go cry in your room,
or read a book 
with nobody bothering you.

But just know that you are helping just by staying home.

Feeling

Let the brightness of the yellow circular sun
heat you up,
like your grandparent's oven making a delicious Thanksgiving turkey.
Let yourself imagine being on the fluffy
calming clouds,
like your bed sheets coming out of the dryer.
Let the wind carry you away to a 
fantasy land,
like you're dreaming, before your blaring alarm wakes you up.
Let the grass
tickle behind your ear,
like your friendly dog, when they give you tongue baths.
Let the morning dew
stick to the back of your legs,
like the rain that pours down every year on a specific day.
Let the mist
cool your face,
like the feeling of an ice cube when it misses your water bottle,
and lands on your bare hand.
Let yourself be one with the outdoors.
Let your feelings take over, and see what that brings you.

Why?

Why?
Why do things have to be like this,
unanswered?
Why? 
Why do I have to stay isolated 
from my friends?
Why?
Why do people do things that they know
are unsafe?
Why?
Why are we judging a person by their
looks, gender, or interests?
Why?
Why does this stuff matter 
so much?
Why?
Why do we care about someone's 
sexuality?
Why?
Why do I have all of these questions
with meaning,
knowing that they might never be answered.

Love Is Love

Love

Whoever

You want

To. 

It does not matter,

Because love

Is love.

It’s free, it’s beautiful.

You cannot stop someone 

For loving another.

It’s what you feel

You are

Comfortable with.

Love is love.

That’s how it shall

Always be.

Butterfly, Better Fly

You can do it,

Fly away,

Forget everyone.

Forget the people that hurt you.

They take your family away.

So what I’ll say, 

Butterfly, 

You better fly. 

And wait,

Before you go,

I must tell you,

You must know!

When you cross the meadows,

So green and lush,

Don’t forget me.

Make the promise,

You shall not forget me.

You shall not forget the one

Who helped you 

And basically saved 

Your life.

Oh, 

Butterfly,

You better fly.

Bank

A bank 

Is a place

Where valuable things

Are stored.

A bank

Is a place

Where beautiful things

Are hidden

Not only from people

But from danger.

A bank 

Can be defined 

As a home

Filled with people

That are valuable

That are beautiful

That are just truly kind.

A bank.
