One of our amazing young people from Capstone Midlands has written poem about the lockdown and the positive things that lie ahead for us all.
Lockdown 'n' Dreams by A
It all started in spring 2020 this year
Like nothing I have ever seen
Quite unpredicted, shocking and unknown
Schools began to close, lessons were from home, so began my dreams
Announcement no exams took some relief off stressing times
City was on lockdown, but supermarkets still open to sell limes
Mum took a breath, peaceful words were spoken
We’ll change our routines, this’ll change our lives, till shops are open
Old routine gone, shops were missing their consumers fast
Keeping fit, reading more, focused less on the past
And didn’t fail to remember this lockdown wasn’t meant to last
It made me stronger, resilient, and try out new things
And I read a book on angels, complete with both halo and wings!
I dream of a day next year, or maybe sometime soon
To see my favourite people, and party till noon
I dream of a better day, let me say it clear
When I can see the world again and no longer live in fear
It’s been a difficult year, but we survived and had fun too
Wearing trendy masks, walking 2 metres apart from you!
I passed all my exams, and my brother brought a nice sports car, wahoo!
Mother went on an expensive shopping spree, whoever said dreams don’t come true!
I dream of a better year, in 2021
The faith and hope in our hearts weigh almost a tonne
Write our visions down, hopes, fears and faith
Pray for those you know and for the human race
We can beat this pandemic with our hopes and dreams
And now a vaccine is in place so next summer we’ll be eating those ice-creams!
