I read this through a few times to be sure I got it, which is good. I agree that it’s a good rendering of how we have had to change with the isolation by the current pandemic, but it’s also with any time of isolation and solitude when we really have time to ourselves to review and let the thoughts we make ourselves too busy to deal with normally to come and run their course. I think many of us are heartened and hopeful by the positive ending. Thanks for sharing!!!

Your poem sums up how it is possible to transform to a more pain-free way of life. Well done.

What a great sonnet! I really liked the emotional tone, and I think you did such a great job of capturing what the next step is going to be in the last two lines!
