The Lockdown Choice – A Coronavirus Poem
When in Lockdown over Coronavirus,
we need to search down deep inside us.
We need to decide to live in so much fear,
Or learn to let that fear disappear!
Those in fear will panic and moan,
over eat, stay unhealthy and stay stuck all alone.
Whilst those that are optimistic, happy & positive,
will learn new things, stay healthy and choose to still live.
You can’t manage things beyond your control,
But you can choose your response, so make positive your goal!
Avoid negative people and negative press,
And anything else that will add to your stress.
Be thankful for the extra time and leisure,
And for doing more things that gives you some pleasure.
The Lockdown won’t last for too long,
Then life will continue, the show will go on.
Hopefully you will heed my advice,
Decide to enjoy Lockdown and make it quite nice.
