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.
