Holiday State of Mind
By Jhantu Randall
Long days stretch into endless nights;
Only the stars keep me company as they shine a light.
Random music plays just to ease my mind;
This place is desolate —
Holiday season during Covid times.
Instances of enjoyment emerges behind lifeless sights
Relieved smiles hold back the pain resting in everyone’s eyes .
One of many at risk yet I do it everyday;
Try to come to terms with it as my restless body lays.
Survivors of this experiment or a bunch of false positives?
Truth be told, this is the price when you’re trained to chase opulence.
