A teenagers poem to account for a year under lockdown.

From this good roundupof statements andart created by US teenagers in response to the pandemic, we discovered"okay" by Brooklyn'sSuhaylah Sirajul-Islam, age 15. An excerpt:

Whats it like, being a teenager in quarantine?its the same i guess.except time passes more slowly.and youre not allowed to go outside.its feeling exhausted from all the schoolwork.and touch-starved because your friends arent there.suddenly, the two-bedroom apartment you share with five family members,finally begins to feel cramped.its feeling terrified, because you share a roomwith your covid-positive aunt, who refuses to see a doctor.and you can hear your dad, coughing through the walls.and your mom at 2 a.m., reciting quran andrushing to make tea for the both of them.she gets sick too.

The full poem is available as a pdf.
