Essential

Essential? What the hell does that word even mean anymore? I’m exhausted. I know I should be grateful because I’m one of the lucky few that still gets to work but at what cost? I never get to see my family anymore. I’ve been exposed to the outside world so I’m sleeping by myself with limited contact. People need human interaction to survive. I interact with people everyday but it’s not the same. Glass barriers and masks make it hard to truly connect. I’m sick of staring at a screen. I want to hug my friends when I see them but I can’t. I’m exhausted. My feet hurt and each day I’m growing wearier. Everyone tells me to suck it up or others have it worse. Suddenly my problems are less valid. I have to worry every single day if I might get this horrible virus and pass it on to my sister who has asthma. She wouldn’t be able to recover like I can. Some people are just the rudest as well. I’m out here everyday working so that you can still acquire the things you need. I’m exhausted. I’m essential. Please be nice.

The room was dark and decrepit, you could smell the mold coming from around the room. Some of the wood panels in the floor were missing and one wrong step you'd be in serious trouble as you fell to a
