"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.
