Outside

Well for starters I can't go outside
And I can guess you know the reason why
And please bear with the handwriting
I just haven't picked up a pen in some time

My hands are more aquatinted
To controllers and remotes
Man I wish I could go outside
But I guess you all know why
But still looking out my window into my backyard
And I won't lie

I was excited when school was cancelled
But if you look at me now
I'm inactive, lazy, forgetful
And I don't know what day it is

Hopefully this all blows over
I feel trapped because
I can't go outside
