Read Poem: A year has passed, by Jo Linsdell

A year has passed
Times have changed
The world stopped…
Then kind of started again

A year has passed
Keeping our distance
Washing our hands
A new sort of normal

A year has passed
Did we learn?
Apparently not enough
The numbers still grow

A year has passed
No job, no money
Government funding is slow
Bills to pay still come fast

A year has passed
The struggle is real
Life goes on…
But only for some

A year has passed…
The pandemic has not
The future is unclear
But we still have hope
