It's creepy to wake up everyday stuck in the house and your eyes missing some street nutrition. Because for a long time You have been saying "I have no time" My boss needs the report And off you rush out and return when the sun is deep long gone. Now you have been gifted with time, To spend with your aging parents , To play with your kids and know them better , To catch a glimpse of your partners changed hair cut , To read a book , To reflect and think about life, dreams, goals and your passion. To build a relationship with yourself , To understand the word of God. Now is the time to reset , To realise that what you hold most valuable does not actually matter. The panic maybe on a soprano tone but earth is Healing. Nature is regaining its momentum.
