I'm falling asleep
Entering the oblivion
Slowly loosing time
I only put my signature on big cheques.

quarantine days are
a chance to be productive
yet I am lazy.
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.

Loneliness doesn't necessarily
Mean unhappiness
It's nice to have things a little quieter

this quiet is nice -
I sit under the dripping
tree, after a storm.

Spoiler! :
I love your poem @Vex3330, it's great to have another person join in the haiku fun! Technically what you wrote isn't actually a haiku, though - haikus have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the next, and 5 in the last.
Right now, your poem is 10-5-11:

Lone-li-ness does-n't ne-ces-sar-i-ly
mean un-hap-pi-ness
It's nice to have things a lit-tle qui-et-er

I hope that makes sense, if not feel free to ask for clarification! :)

after the storm ends,
salvage treasures from the wrecks
and rebuild your world.

rebuilding your world
takes time, but no hurricane
is stronger than you.

It's stronger than you,
the ocean, but that doesn't
mean you can't make waves.

you can't make waves if
the fear of drowning stops you
from touching water.

touching the water,
making ripples that spread out
from your finger tips.

flickering from your eyes,
blazing with anger.
