You're allowed not to be profound.
Now, at the moment,
You don't have to be.
In a grind of a time,
With death and loss and anger and ills,
Where we couldn't even trust the air
(due to virus or heat),
You, I, Us
Had weight on our minds.
More than normal. Far more than normal.
Had trouble thinking? You weren't alone.
We're closer to Better:
To a time to have a chance to do more than survive,
To a time with more space to heal.
We're getting there.
We're not there.
(We're not there.)
(We're getting there.)
Where/When you can,
Take a breather.
