Before, people could hear the noise of the street.
Now, you can barely hear the pit pat of your feet.
Before, you could get chips by going to the store.
Now, it's not that simple anymore.
Before, you could look on the street,
And there would be people here and there.
Now, nothing but fear everywhere.
Before, people could go to Disneyland.
Now, some people call the city bland.
But the City is still going
No matter how it looks
The City is still full of people
And the Library still has its books
People are still working
No matter what background they are in
And now people are seeing
How much they value their kin.
It's still the same hustle and bustle.
This city has not yet lost its muscle
People are still working all day long
No matter what, New York City stays strong
Things may look a little strange
But it's going to be okay
Because then again
Who hasn't seen things change?

Today I’m scared.
Scared for my life...
People at risk,
People who lose their family,
Scared ill never see my friend again,
Scared that they will never see me again,
Scared about life after this,
Scared about the impact.
Scared…will we rise up?
Today will mean more,
Today will mean more,
More than yesterday did,
Today will be more,
More than the day before that came,
Not the day after,
Today is the day,
The day that will be history.

If coronavirus was a restaurant, I would give her a solid One-Star rating.
She would only get One Star because she is not only killing humans but she is also keeping us trapped inside our houses. This is stopping us from learning, getting snacks, and celebrating events.
But I won't give her Zero Stars because in some places she isn't affecting people as badly as she is here -- in New York City. The only reason Coronavirus would ever get over "Three Stars" would be if she stopped hurting humans forever.
Coronavirus is also on my bad side since she affected my grandfather and almost affected my mother. Luckily she didn't affect my mother too badly, but because of this we are not the best of friends. Not only is Coronavirus dangerous, she also comes with coughing and shortness of breath.
I have one more bad review for Coronavirus. She attacks people with bad immune systems and since I have asthma, I feel in danger every day.
