Year End Poem 2020: Staying Strong

George Xu is passionate about tea, philosophy, literature, magic, and dragons.


A lot has occurred this year
Mostly events that inspire anxiety
and let's say maybe even fear

When Twenty-Twenty arrived
A lot were excited for a new year
No one could ever believed
That a pandemic will come
And afflict the whole planet,
And we're forced to be indoors, at home.

Yet we proved darkness wrong
'Cause despite all these,
we see people staying strong,
And even supporting each other
Despite any calamity
Whether they be here or thither

I hope that wherever we are
Will be with each other,
even from afar.
May Christmas and the Year End
Bring us Good Hope, my friend!
