Uncertain Times

Updated on March 20, 2020

There Is A Lot Of Bad News

It doesn't mean you won't be o.k.

Things will be different for awhile

Many problems might arise

There will be solutions on the way

We have to be patient

Listen and learn a little more

We are all discovering new approaches

When the old methods have to be put on hold

The simplest things we took for granted

Being close to each other every day

Now we should stay six feet away

Protecting each other as well as ourselves

Washing our hands with soap and water

Trying not to touch our face

To be safe

We have seen many businesses shut down for the time being

To keep any risk of the CoronaVirus spreading any farther

As much as I wish it was it was like five months ago

Where none of these problems existed

We have to move forward and not back

I think we have to communicate with each other more

Using new technology and advances

Calling on the cell phone or maybe texting

Before we took for granted that most of us

Will be fine tomorrow

Now it wouldn't hurt to check on our neighbors and make sure

Food stores and pharmacies are not closing

So the worst thing we can do is panic

It is o.k. to have a little extra

Then we see how people can go way over board

It isn't necessary to clean out the store

So when tomorrow comes we shall see more

I am not sure when it will be back to somewhat calm and peace again

What I do know

Is we have to stick together to make each day better

      Gypsy Rose Lee I love your beliefs and one day we will see. This life is only a small piece of a much bigger picture that we don't understand and can't begin to comprehend. All we can do is our personal best and watch and learn from other people. Helping each other through life. Thank you so much for reading and caring. The weather is sunny and 60. Cool but nice. I hope your day will end up swell.

      You know I keep writing and I keep positive and I have my own little philosophy that has to do with complete faith. I came to this after my husband passed away. A moment when I stood still suddenly not knowing what to do. Then it was like the Lord stood beside me and it became clear. The love of my life has passed on to the other side and that is where many of my loved ones and friends are now. Someday when I pass on whether it is now or sometime much later I will see them all again and be overjoyed to join them so - what is there to be afraid of? And that truth keeps me going and believing.

      Brenda Arledge People will always be able to go to food stores and to the pharmacy if needed. Every day we see more cases in the news. Please be safe and keep in touch. We haven't had a lockdown in Maine as of yet. My work is still open because we have a drive-thru so people can still be served food. I hope every day gets a little easier and then it will get better. Try to have a good day. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      Dream on,

      I look forward to the days ahead when it goes back to normal, but I don't see in end in sight.

      Groceries are not closed yet, but hours open are dwindling and the trucks delivery is shorter.

      I'm already tired of being inside...only so much time or texting will get one by these isolated days.

      Stay safe and healthy my friend.

      Sticking together and helping each other is the only way we will get through this. As terrible as this virus is, I hope it brings us all closer in a more meaningful and thoughtful way. I loved this poem Dream On.
