This book contains 531 poems that I posted on social media during the pandemic. The poems described what I was feeling and observing each day. They helped me to bear the weight of the pandemic. They also made me feel connected to others. My poems became a way for me to hold onto my sanity, and when I posted them on social media I discovered they were a lifeline for many others too. People recognized themselves in my words. This made us all feel closer. This collection of poems helps me to remember what we’ve all lived through and what I’ve learned about myself and the world. I hope they do the same for you.
