P.O., 20, in Kisumu, Kenya

A scourge to forget! Words can’t express the frustration and boredom stemming from this pandemic. From the early naps to the government enforced lockdown from dusk to dawn, all these making life seem so hard. The risk of exposure to the disease is relatively high since our breadwinner has to go out in order to fend for us. A couple of my pals have been laid off by the companies they work at, in a bid to cut on the costs. Their family needs being constant, they are having a hell of a time trying to fend for the same. This has led to increased depression. Well, at least one can see that on their faces. Hopefully it ends as soon as possible, because one more day in here, and I am going mad!!
