I had high hopes for world wide changes as I began 2020
With no clue as to how outrageous it would be,
“Bring it on”, I said to myself,
"The world as we’ve known it must come to a close."
Empaths and compassionate hearts were used as a weakness,
While the aggressive and forceful have held us in an unseen prison.
The deep gasp came in spring as shut downs and the dreaded CV word took center stage.
Stay home, keep your breath to yourself as you might spread the deadly weapon.
Schools closed, stores closed, and a threat to our survival became the agenda.
Personal contact became known as a deadly sin,
Socializing a crime?
Lines blurred between truth and fabrication
Shame, blame, and guilt cast doubt amongst the people.
Paranoia fed to the people
The enemy a virus that divided even those who were once friends
News media, social media,…. which media to discern?
Truth and lies mixed into confusing rhetoric
Fear infected just like the virus
Who’s the enemy as so many seemingly could not discern.
Oh, yes, masks as promises to return to normal were hung just beyond the reach of our noses.
Vaccines, why yes, Vaccines will save the day!
The people must cooperate so that humanity does not fall into extinction!
Deceit, lies, half truths, scientific truths became a myriad of a shell game
Mirrors staged to deflect what’s real
Politicians and governors slammed down their fists
To save the crumbling structures that have no place to hide.
Dinosaurs, they are but could not see
Holding on for dear life to an era that is already just a memory
Lives ruined as the livelihood of some tanked into oblivion
The Government rallied and promised to save its people
Trillions of dollars poured out to save its good and helpless citizens
Only to find that the behemoth hoarders only served themselves the richest portions.
All was not lost in the end in this tale of a year
Cosmic streams flooded and washed the hearts of humanity
The Spirit of the One piercing and penetrating the hearts of so many
Truth with the eyes of the heart opened
As the lockdowns gave people the pause to see through the smoke and mirrors
More felt the inner turmoil of letting go of what once was
The gifts of Spirit washed us
Scrubbing layers that we did not know even existed
Self-love surfaced as the inner truth
"I've been a diamond all along", began reverberating its unwavering truth
And Spirit has made it clear we are the ones we’ve been waiting for
We sparkle like diamonds and pure love draws us to hum a new tune
It was an epic year.
I thank you for the 20/20 vision.
