For the People who Almost Didn’t Make it Through the Pandemic
Life is worth living.
They won’t be better off without you
You didn’t let them down
And if you did, it can be healed
Yes, the hole is deep,
But there are stairs.
Yes, your feet are bleeding,
But there are chairs.
Someone always cares.
Something is breaking forth
Your cocoon is not a straight jacket
It’s a perfect package
For growing wings
for Better Things
Your help is coming
Your help is on the way
Your hope is already here
