An ode to those on the front lines
World Poetry Day and the events from the last few weeks have inspired me to write this homage.
I have seen facets of humanity that had not yet presented themselves in such vivid ways since my arrival to Earth.
While I could focus on the hysteria and paranoia seen across the globe,
I choose to focus on the healthcare professionals, scientists, and everyone working endless hours to control the situation while supplying everyone’s essential needs.
Most of what is happening is unprecedented in our day and age.
No one on the battlefront has ever experienced anything like this.
So, as you sit on the sidelines in your secluded quarters,
Trust that people are doing their best, and be grateful for those on the front lines.
