All this time to myself
I learned something new
Our bodies are temples
Hence they are dear too

(I’ve been on quarantine since March 9 and since then, I’ve understood that our bodies are just as important as our minds. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always known they are equally important. However, I often disregarded my body, focusing only on my inner self. Fortunately, I think I’ve finally defeated most of my demons. Now, it’s time to improve other aspects of myself.)

Hustling against an intrepid entity
Opens doors to turbulent hysteria.
The awareness of being winnable
Could shatter patterns and fortitude.
But we must pilot bulks of mildness,
Endure this brute with optimism,
And scream from atop the roofs:
“We might have been bitten by your savage self,
But we will always end up victorious!”

And just like that, normalcy has been set aside
To battle a leviathan that cannot be taken lightly
Individual conscience must prevail upon egotism
Our world unified, not doused with racialism
