Covid Year

Mask with Birds (Jan Barry photo)

By Jan Barry

A year of hair
Unfurls down my neck—
I’ve outlived a pandemic
So far

Millions dead and dying
As preening politicians bicker—
What’s there to celebrate
In this covid time

Lost my job, my livelihood,
Quarantined from friends
And family gatherings,
Hunkering from death’s breath

Only the lucky
Are still living—
Living like moths
Flitting amid the flames

This is what depression
Looks like, as year 2 looms—
I’d rather soar with eagles
And migrate with the seasons

My husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's disease at 57.his symptoms were shuffling of feet,slurred speech, low volume speech, degradation of hand writing, horrible driving skills, right arm held at 45 degree angle, things were tough for me, but now he finally free from the disease with the help of total cure from ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC, he now walks properly and all symptoms has reversed, he had trouble with balance especially at night, getting into the shower and exiting it is difficult,getting into bed is also another thing he finds impossible.we had to find a better solution for his condition which has really helped him a lot,the biggest helped we had was ultimate life clinic they walked us through the proper steps,am highly recommended this to anyone who needs help.
