It’s been many days since the world was encouraged to self-quarantine themselves in an effort to slow the spread for COVID-19. And after so many days at home, you run out of ideas to entertain yourself, and it’s easy to get bored.
However, as actress Jennifer Garner revealed, that boredom can turn into you realize a talent you didn’t know you had. In Garner’s case, her 8-year-old son, Samuel, is a poet and he doesn’t even know it. Well, if he didn’t know it before the start of this global pandemic, he and his mom’s 8.9 million followers do now.

And her followers loved the poem too. “Couldn’t have said it better ourselves! You got this, Fitz,” one commenter wrote. “Love this! Well done,” another added.
