30 DAYS OF JAYE: Running & Saving

Note: This poem is from the collection Thoughts In A Pandemic, available on Amazon.

Running and saving

This is all which can

Be done.

The saving of time

And lives and money

All as tears of frustration come

As sunrises do.

Running and saving,

This is all which can be done.

There are still those whom

Are alive, who from Reapers,

And light that call or reach—-

Always reaching, always needing

Not sure tomorrow is here or done.

Saving masks,

Reusing of what was disposable

Because those whom have never

Tasted fire, know to cover

Your face to keep tears at bay

From smoke.

We are all running and saving,

That is all which can be done.
