Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys?

The ones who are worried about going back to normal because in hindsight it doesn't seem so normal, my monkeys

The ones who are being furloughed and let go, my monkeys

The ones who are worried about someone's health, my monkeys

The ones who are grieving someone's last breath, my monkeys

The ones who are needing to feel free and roam around, my monkeys

The ones who like catching their breath and allowing the planet to breathe, my monkeys

The ones who are working long days and can't find time to go to the grocery store, my monkeys

The ones working at the grocery store, my monkeys

The ones who make tough calls and follow protocols, my monkeys

The ones who worry about all the things nearly all the time, my monkeys

The ones don't know what to think, my monkeys

The ones who are isolated, my monkeys

The ones who feel aggravated, my monkeys

The ones who celebrated something differently this year, my monkeys

The ones who find joy in the little things, my monkeys

The ones who send up tear stained prayers, my monkeys

The ones who breath a deep sigh of relief, my monkeys

The ones who think of others, my monkeys

The ones who get swallowed up by fear, my monkeys

The ones who lose their stuff, my monkeys

The ones who give away their stuff, my monkeys

The ones who face another uncertain day, my monkeys

The ones who have big opinions, my monkeys

The ones who quietly contemplate, my monkeys


It's a complicated circus out there, be kind to yourself and to others.
