A poem about life before and after the discovery of COVID-19 vaccinations

Now that the COVID-19 vaccines have reduced the number of cases, it’s nice to see each other in person again! Photo by Helena Lopes on Unsplash

Trigger warning: The first half of this poem is about the negative effects of COVID-19. If this is a sensitive topic for you, please read at your own discretion.

Before our health and many lives depended on masks, we saw each other’s faces in public places.
