A Cup of Normalcy in a Time of Chaos

Coffee smells waft around the kitchen

And I take a sip

From the motivated cup of ambition

Eager to set goals for the day

Yearning to feel the sunbeams on my skin

Wanting to taste the sweet hint of spring

The lethargic leaves of lust

Falling from the lonely branches of love


Springtime is a blessing

An inkling of optimism

In times of fear, isolation, and abnormality

One can look out their window

Watching the lethargic leaves of lust

Fall from the lonely branches of love

Sipping from a hot cup of coffee:

A neutral cup of normalcy
