The world as we know it has turned upside-down
And we are walking like strangers inside a foreign town
Familiar streets now laced with traces of fear
Trying to find our roots again in spaces once held dear
It’s like we are close to arrival but not quite yet
Hearts remembering traumas our brains attempt to forget.
Perhaps there are milestones even in the deepest dark
Like warm, glowing lights leaving a trustworthy mark
Through the looming fears and the unspoken depths
Like a hand to hold onto as we carefully hold our breaths
Attempt the healing process in the face of the unknown
Leading one another to the safety of our home.
