*BEEP* your alarm clocks goes off for the umpteenth time of quarantine. The past and present fade together as the days play an infinite loop.
In January I posted an article here called How To Love the Repetition of Life. Little did I know that quarantine and a global lockdown that would last for months was around the corner.
Looking back on my article, I realized I’ve learned a lot. I haven’t been my usual happy-go-lucky self who always finds the positive in everything. I’ve gone from one coping mechanism to the next trying to center my happiness.
One of these coping mechanisms I’ve always had is writing. With all my solitary free time, I’ve been writing poetry almost every night. Recently I wrote this:
Maybe the goal isn’t to learn how to love the monotony of life. Maybe it’s just realizing that everything could very well change tomorrow.
