Adjusting

By Joshua Armell, 15, Milton

I miss the busy roads; I miss eating out.

I miss the positivity; I miss roaming about.

I miss going to school; I miss giving hugs.

I miss touching someone else without wearing gloves.

But I miss most of all just the plain old fun, and so

I miss the point of spreading fear to all our little ones.
