Future No Future

I’m no spring chicken, as my dad used to say.
What if this is what life will be like until the day I die?
Never see my sisters and their families in England again.
Barely ever see my O‘ahu friends.
All my travel plans out the proverbial window.
Australia, the last continent I’ve never visited, never visited.

What if this is what the world will be like until the day I die?
No one traveling anywhere.
Businesses failing left and right.
Millions of people falling into poverty everywhere.
Education at every level reduced to online instruction.
Going out of your house only when you dare.

Will we all be become lonelier, deprived of our lives as they were before?
Will we all become alien to everything this world once held in store?
