Transformational Poetry: Lockdown

Transformational Poetry: Lockdown

by Liam

It’s not only about me

It’s about the new way, we are

What happened then in isolation

Also touched a part of me

Transforming it too

We were all affected

Although not all infected

That invisible threat drove the wedge

Driving each individual into the lockdown of quiet Isolation

The world of everything

Reduced to a universe alone

This enormously empty space

Occupied me a while, slowing down

It took time getting used to this pace

Me within the warm rooms of aloneness

It’s the silence which opens the windows

Insights inside the mind

Letting in the light

Letting me understand

Letting me reach out

Away from self to hear

The echo, of the echo

Of peace within

For we all are in this together

Together this world becomes more beautiful

Moving in unison toward the ring of our soul

Not heard, but felt by the spirit.
