In these times of uncertainty and pain
I often ponder what of this will remain
When we emerge from our sheltered abodes
And begin to live a ‘normal’ life once more
Will we have learned anything of value
From this heart-wrenching deathly lesson
And be kinder, gentler, treading lighter upon Mother earth
Determined to leave no lasting marks where we were
But what I truly wonder will this newfound wisdom last
Or be nothing more than a passing phase?
