The hard night hits all too well
When hearing one word rung like a bell.
Never in the wildest dreams could this come true.
The reality sank in like the color blue.
Above all, learning was quite a light.
The memories painted bright.
Here in the world, isolation hit.
The combination of everything was not a good fit.
“How could this be?”one wondered out loud.
Major accomplishments far from proud.
Isolation didn’t resonate with many.
Their happiness fell short like the size of a penny.
Reality was, it wasn’t that bad.
Over time, less people became sad.
Now the whole world knows “isolation”
And how it brought people together as one nation.
