This poem is about how life in quarantine is beginning to seem like Limbo, a world where one loses their awareness that the world created is not reality (according to Leonardo diCaprio’s Inception).

With nothing but time on our hands

with nothing on our heads but tiny grey strands

Nowadays, the real world feels like limbo

everyone’s waiting to stand free, with arms akimbo.

This life with quarantine, life with slow, heavy breaths

life with surreal circumstances, surrounded with multiple deaths.

how do we escape this limbo, this surreal circumstance

how do we change our world, do we stand a chance?

Glaring out the windows of our abodes

only to witness empty, empty roads.

Glaring out the windows of our homes

only to witness an infection that freely roams.

Now we’re starting to question our reality

we’re starting to question our mentality

Whilst glaring out the window

deeper into a ‘limbo.’

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
