The resilient generation

The pandemic landed like a meteor
on your young life
wiping out graduation
in the way you had imagined it for so long
and I know
it may not make it feel better now
but you are the ones
we will talk about
years from now
the resilient generation
we will call you,
the ones who learned sacrifice
and the secret of happiness,
that it blooms
from the hole you dug
to keep others safe,
and you will see the ones
next year and the year before you
who didn’t miss out
who got everything
they want
except what you have
which is all everyone wants
at the end of the day
but it grows
as you know
only when you give
some away.
