Addicted to Life



There’s a man over there
With a rainbow in his hair
And a smile etched on his face
He has an addiction to life
And a love of the human race.

His thoughts he keeps a secret
Opinions close to his chest
Intrigue is his demeanour
I’m sure he is blessed
His personality will manifest

What does he think of today’s world
And how the virus has taken hold
What does he think of lockdown
And how it will unfold
This is how he told.

We will come out stronger
With a different attitude
Families together forever
Never in solitude
Stay safe.
