COVID 19 Support
A Manchester community member, mother to several children, reached out to Neshomo and shared a poem she wrote. We feel it’s an inspiring look at the struggles of lockdown.
WHEN covid-19 invades and the world's rapidly changing. . .
I remember that I'm resilient and constantly learning.
WHEN I sink into despair, "can't stay indoors any longer". . .
I acknowledge that through it, I'm becoming stronger and stronger.
WHEN I feel "this quarantine is too tough! That's it!". . .
I remember I'm a fighter and I'm not gonna quit.
WHEN the news is black as night. . . I will be creative and make light.
WHEN the children are anxious and unsure. . .
I will provide loving explanations to keep them secure.
WHEN I reflect on how I'd never believe this could be. . .
I'm amazed at the growth and transformation in me.
