“Dear America”

I hear your cries, muffled by masks

I hear your sirens, blaring with fear and uncertainty

I hear your new silence, filling the once busy streets of the life we all knew

I carry your burden of guesswork, frantically trying to piece the puzzle together

I see your people, prisoners in their own homes

I am your children, being ripped out of my cocoon

I know your boundaries, invaded by an invisible enemy

I know your economy, crushed by isolation

I know your heroes, the overplayed and the unsung

I hear you, America

You are strong, America

We will fight, America

We will win, America.
