Being locked up at home

Updated: May 13, 2020

Being locked up at home makes me feel

Lonely, bored yet content.

I use my imagination

Till the day's end,

And then, as normal,

I wander off to bed.

Being locked up at home makes me feel

Angry, annoyed yet not sad.

I do virtual schooling and then I am glad

That I have got my work out of the way,

Then get my exercise in

A walk-in-the-park sort of way.


Being locked up at home makes me feel

Stressed, unhappy yet calm.

I do my homework

Ahead of time,

Then sit on the sofa, reading,

Till eight or sometimes even nine.


Being locked up at home makes me feel

Grumpy, stuffy yet sluggish.

I sleep in late

Till I can rest no more,

Then after lunch,

Go to the garden -

Which I enjoy so much more!


When I'm finally out,

Breathing freedom in once more,

Although I will be joyful and excited

I will also have memories of

The goodness of lockdown.

So when I go outside as before,

Even though it will be a day to remember,

I still will miss

Going for daily walks in the park,

And clapping with the heart of the country in my hands.
