Knowing many people but alone all day long.
Hoping for a vacation but neglectfully despised.
Bad feelings envelope your soul once in a while.
You smile without, but your heart burns within.
You wish someone will validate your sacrifice.
Life is made to function on high speed or rush hour.
Counting her curses, invited sadness and depression.
Consequently, quarantined from Lebenfreude’s fountain.

One minute a jailer; another the caregiver.

At times you feel guilty staying home.
Busybodies judge you too for staying home.
The kids awaken your murderous instinct.
You wish for help with the baby but see less.

Use a telescope and see future world changers
