2020: 7 Billion Superheros

The end of each year,
Magical and festive,
Gives us hope for the new year,
"It's going to be impressive",
Resolutions are discussed,
During festive celebrations,
Plans made at night,
In exciting variations,
Another chance for a new start
Is finally here,
Once again blessed,
With another new year,
Only this time it's different,
Less excitement, more fear,
People lose hope,
as their dreams disappear,
What can we do?
It's getting out of control,
People aren't listening,
We've been told to stay home,
This will go down in history,
We must be the ones,
Who did what was needed,
To save our daughters and sons,
Their future is in our hands,
Now more than ever,
We'll make it incredible,
And they'll enjoy it forever.

Unity, yet distance is a hard task. But we’ve gotten through worse.

A very nice poem. It resonates hope in such a difficult time of fear and panic.

We all need to come together for the benefit of those who need to be protected. Let's hope the message is finally sinking in. A great poem Karla with a timely reminder.
