Life Is Upside Down
Not touching your own nose,
Not going to school,
Not going to your place of worship,
Not shaking hands,
Washing your hands more than you can count,
Wearing a face mask even when you can’t find enough air to breathe.
Imprisoning yourself in your own home,
Not having enough money in the pocket,
Coping with hunger,
Trying to remain safe when all you see is danger.
And worst of it all,
Not knowing when the mystery will be behind you.
In a single summary of it all,
Learning how not to be human while you are still one.
Hope you now understand in clear terms,
The meaning of “life is upside down”.
Can your personal worries be any worse?
Maybe you should find another expression for your worries,
It’s not fair expressing it as,
“life is upside down”.
