Days are not so dreary now.
Dare we hope for a new tomorrow?
Another day that teaches us how
To live, love, express our sorrow
For what we have all been through.
How has the Pandemic affected you?
No one was left unscathed.
We all knew hardship and pain.
Our lives were interrupted with waves
Of loss, confusion, fear, blame
When there was no enemy to stand up to.
How can we ever know who?
So, we must be strong.
We must never look back.
Somehow, we’ll get past the wrongs
And find the courage we lack.
The virus still thrives.
How do we go on with our lives?
We move forward as we have always done.
We pray to our Deity as in the past when we have won!
