Not Travelling Around

By Finn Hern, Age 14 years old

 

I’m not travelling around.

I’m doing online school.

I’m always wearing a mask when outdoors.

Don’t worry, I’m not a fool.

 

I’m trying to stay safe.

I’m always staying inside.

I’m trying not to see friends.

At least I can say I tried.

 

I can’t wait to see family again,

But I have to wait until all of this is over.

I can’t wait to travel again,

But when I do, I will be a globe-trotting rover!

 

When this is all over,

All the places are going to seem like new.

It will take us forever to recover,

With our population of unaffected people now so few.
