A young creature of 19 called –

Coronavirus has claimed lives

leaving the fewer with dread

so we live in fear.

Retiring to be continued

I weave farewell to my bed

to continue my daily regularity

where a magazine is a breakfast

Unfortunately, I pick up a wrong magazine,

a magazine that speaks of COVID-19

Covid that inks a mope in my head

a head that reads through in slough of despond

to eye an imagination that penetrates lives in despair and untimely

An untimeliness that has created a vacuum

of loneliness & pain in me

the pain of distress which has eaten

away my hope

but death is not an optional answer to the distressness

So I pray

May God captained our narrow ship

through this misery

May God lead our scarier hearts

to the promised land.
