The following was submitted to the RhymeZone 2021 poetry contest:


I feel like I am in a dream
Similar to what I've seen
On a movie, moving screen
In a vision, as a fiend

Alternate ending,  to the scene
Rapid changes keep changing.
What we once thought - would be in screams,
Is casually masked by normal things.
We normalize the in between,
And pray that one day we'd be freed.
Even if it ends democracy
We know we always still believed.
Keep it locked, the swallowed key
As we behold a newer seed
We plant the future with the need
To grow our everlasting peace.
I pray for those who lose their feet
And also loved ones to disease
I put my hope in this vaccine
I wish that this was all a dream.
