The anxiety pounds

& Fear

S

I

N

K

S i n t o my marrow.


It steals my breath

my energy

when I ponder

what life would be

with

NO kin

NO love

NO air.

I beg the Gods

I beg the trees

I beg the stars Protect my

angutik panik siblings

frens parents enemies

keep them FREE from

the virus

& Problems.

Let them keep their jobs

homes

joys

for

many, many, many

more years

become old and gray,

gray and old.
