It started with a whisper
The people around me speaking of a new reality
Softly inquiring if it would come to fruition
Nobody truly knew what was in store
Oh but we would soon come to know,
The truth would bear its head.
The whispers turned to shouts
Hollering about a new world, one that was isolated
Even so it made you wonder
Stuck alone by myself, who would I become?
A pressing question that bounced off the walls.
Months rolled by as days turned into weeks
Every day being the same, no deviation.
And so I was trapped with myself
Nothing stopping me from peering into my own soul
Youthfulness fleeting as I grew into someone I only ever imagined
More months passed by, and the new year came and went
Old worries were being to put to rest, the cloud was starting to lift
Reality had finally set in, the shouts turning back to whispers
Except I knew normalcy wouldn’t return, because nothing is the same anymore.
