When will we ever feel normal again?

I want to be strong, not weak
I wish I can stop crying myself to sleep.
I have no one to keep me warm when I need.
And I have faced every obstacle with no shield, just me.
I want to feel normal again.
I want something, anything to ease the pain.
In the past I could hide the soreness too well, but now?
Now it's a glued mask to my face.

What an open, honest poem! Thank you for expressing your feelings. It’s not easy. This pandemic has only gotten more difficult to deal with. But please hang in there okay? Please, please, please don’t give up!

You're not alone.
Unfortunately, there's no easy solution. Keep fighting and believe in yourself. You're not weak, otherwise you would've given up already. You are very strong, even if you don't feel like it. That's the struggle with being strong - you always feel weak, because you're always using your strength to push forward.
