    Arms

    Freedom, it has failed me,

    the army is on the streets.

    Panic buying drains the shelves

    and everyone I meet

    is fighting a personal battle

    against a personal fear.

    Conspiracy theories fill a void

    and blame is always there.

    But, here is the centre,

    ever present, never moved.

    I look for it inside myself

    and trust I'll find it soon.

    It was here when I saw

    the sun rise today,

    above a thousand heads.

    It will be here for a tomorrow

    I do not know, but as Hamlet said,

    take arms against a sea of troubles.

    A rainbow follows rain.

    This day rises inside my heart,

    that I can step out again.
