There’s a way

To find meaning

Even as the world ends


We let the sun warm

Our tired faces

Even as our carefully constructed world

Falls apart around us

Look up

The sky is clear

No longer scarred by our comings and goings


We can find a new way of living

Despite the pain of change

And all that is torn from us


We can choose

How we survive

Not just this

But everything beyond


We embrace the slowdown

Prioritise the people not the profit

Let our enforced separation

Grow the community in our hearts


We take this chance to recognise what is truly important

And do not allow ourselves to forget


We can come through this

Even with our burdens of pain and loss

And create a whole new world

Just suppose

That this needn’t be the end


It’s our beginning
