What We Took For Granted

What We Took For Granted Lauren Gardner Lion’s Roar Staff We complained about the work Some teens stayed inside We went to stores without masks And now we look like we’re in disguise One day we were at school For the next month we went online Those movie and mall trips Weren’t a waste of time Spring plans erased Life changed and it was all so fast Yeah, school work was a pain We wanted one day off, Never this to really last We can’t hang out with friends Or go out too much anymore Missing the idea of choice After all this distancing I won’t want to be a bore It feels we took the great outdoors for granted And now we see at what cost Phones and gadgets are now needed Staying inside for years was really our greatest loss
