The world has come to a halt,

Coronavirus is the cause.

I’m alone with my thoughts in quarantine,

and wonder if this is how God meant it to be.

For while the world pauses, mother nature heals,

and there is a newfound appreciation for human interaction.

I will emerge out of quarantine a better person,

for I have pondered on life’s lessons.
