will I be able? by Daniela Domenici

on 21st March, fter six months and a half

that is, two hundred and three days

of uninterrupted convalescence at home

of solitude, of silence, of hermitage

will I be able to enter the outside world again?

Will I be able to deal with people again?

will I be able to teach English again?

will I be able to interact with colleagues and pupils again?

Doubts are overwhelming me

Doubts are giving me insomnia

Doubts are making me crying silently
