Kitty O’Meara is the poet laureate of the pandemic. Her untitled prose poem, which begins with the line, “And the people stayed home,” has been shared countless times, on countless backgrounds, with countless fonts, since its first posting, and for very good reason.

We hope these words of wisdom inspire you as much as they did for us. Let them be a reminder that this too shall pass and while we are in it, try to embrace the process. Heal. Come together. xoxo
