A former resident of the Nightshelter who moved into her own rented flat last year, sent us a New Year poem she wrote reflecting on the challenges of the pandemic.
2020, what a year!
Mostly lockdown, no Christmas cheer,
Lots of food and lots of telly,
I wonder why I got a big belly!
Thursday clap for the NHS,
Who really are, doing their best,
Covid-19, in every city & town,
No wonder why, everyone’s down.
Mental health is on the increase,
And it will til Covid cease,
Not seeing your family for a hug & a kiss,
One of the things lots of people miss.
Hopefully soon life can return to normality,
And nowhere near 1000’s of fatality,
I thought I’d write this for you all to hear,
I WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
