Aya Pfeufer explores the impacts of the current pandemic

I can’t believe this is happening,
we are in an unprecedented; challenging time that is not fine.

A mass pandemic, Covid-19 also know as Coronavirus has brutally corrupted and destroyed lives,
as some are more vulnerable and are fighting to survive,
in this unexpected chaos, through which we all strive.

Some feel that they are being distressingly deprived,
from their cyclical freedom as they question their reason.

Wrapped up in thoughts of amplifying anxiety, uncertainty and grievance.
Waking up, living to a clustered environment of spiralling fear,
as more reports of mass deaths excessively appear.

Cheer for those who put themselves at risk, such as the key workers and care home staff,
that spend night and day,
dealing with this pandemic.

Yet it’s unbearable to hear them say,
that your closest are drifting away.
It’s hard, heartbreaking and horrifying, yet it’s here.
For how much longer, a year?

We can reflect from this time, and come to a moment of stillness,
And help our minds feel clear,
In our own home atmosphere.
