Poetry: my hope for you

When they ask you what you’ve learned during these unprecedented times,
What skills you have developed,
My hope for you is that you can say,

I learned to put myself first.

I learned that my health is important,
more important than the grind.

I learned that “I love you” can be said
in a thousand small and new ways.

I learned to find love in the smallest things,
and to find wonders right outside my front door.

I learned to rest.

I learned that the cruelty of the few
doesn’t outshine the kindness of the many.

I learned many new things about my inner world,
away from the eyes of society.

I learned that I have the strength
to survive even the darkest of days.

I learned that I am enough.
