COVID-19

I've become more lazy during this time,

I eat more, I sleep more, I move less, and my self-consciousness grows. 

 I try to change but I can't seem to find the motivation.

 I know what I want to do

 but I don't want to do it.

 At some point I'm going to have to force myself to stop,

 I have to force myself to go and do something

 to push down my insecurities

 I miss my friends, I miss going out, I miss my birthday, I miss my freedom.

 I know that this isn't a way to take our rights away

 I can't help but feel some type of way.

 I know it's to protect me but it's not protecting me mentaly.

Frustration and anger is all I feel

All of my friends, even teachers don't know how to heal

Sooner or later i won't be able to sleep, eat, or move

The little motivation that I have left would be shattered

Eventually I will get tired of this consistent  pattern.

I shouldn't be complaining, im safe, im health, i'm living, im breathing

 I’m sorry, but I’m only a  human being

Work, work, work,work 

that’s all I can do

But what would happen when the work is due

Will there be nothing else to occupy my time, books and tv can't always fill up my mind

Family and friends I worry about

Are they safe, are they protected, are the caring

Sure i can call but who picks up the phone anymore

How are their mentalities,

Are they distinguishing fantasy from reality?

Summer isn't over yet. Lets still hope

Who am i kidding, it's only another way to cope

I hope and pray that everyone is doing ok,

I hope and i pray that everyone is staying sane

It won't be long now, or so I thought
