Lockdown lessons

What has lockdown taught me? Lots! That my own space is important, that we can change our world, that bloody pubs do not matter. That some folk will never learn or care.
It’s also taught me that there are amazing humans out there and some of them are the most unlikely of folk, that respect matters more than we ever thought, that we cannot trust all we read or watch (OK I knew that already), that people and our world matter so much more than profit, power, control, or greed.
It taught me fear for the wellbeing of others and of loss, but it taught me life changes in ways we never believed possible.
It taught me no political party is fit to govern as they all are about what they can grab.
It made me realise being human holds duties that cannot at least by some of us ever be ignored.
I learnt that we are the keepers not owners of our planet, and magic exists all around us if we just open our eyes to it.
I realised we should cherish the natural world not be in fear of it.
I now understand we own nothing but the kindness we have for all including ourselves and that which others give to us, but also that it is all too easy to lose sight of the importance of caring.
I know that humans can be stupid, corrupt, immoral and vile, but all so many are not.
The most important thing of all is I realised we are never truly alone. Someone always cares, even if we do not know it.
I am here for all folk, whether you know me or not. Its that simple.

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
