"COVID-19 and its Outcome" by Asiyih Mariapan

It erupted from the depths.

Explosion of new things, we are inept.

Something happened out of place,

It took a while to see what we will face.

We have locked ourselves inside,

but will we find peace in where we reside?

“Please stay home, and wear a mask.”

I still saw people who wonder and ask.

I would unknowingly scroll (on social media),

and witness something that puts me on hold.

A friend out with another;

without any mask to shield or cover.

Forty days and forty nights,

the world was split into different sides.

“This is a living nightmare!”

yet all I see is a world in repair.

Trees and flowers are blooming,

and all air pollution is reducing.

Birds singing their melody;

scary neighbours with calmer energy.

It’s a therapeutic time.

To breathe and meditate, it’s a sign.

Problems are being pushed aside,

because now it’s the time to be alive.

Positive beats negative;

whether it’s with a blow or two.
