This past year was tough For all of us The foreign virus Tried to defeat our trust
We were fighting an unknown fiend It separated us,tried to make us weak Destroyed our economies,thwarted our means Of livelihood.We couldn't let it win
Warriors came in coats of white Treating without care for there own lives Just so humanity could survive. Some were martyred.We cannot forget the sacrifice.
Trucks ensured we had food to eat And all other amenities But what of those who were away from home Those poor,migrants and forlorn Angel descended in human disguise Good samaritans helped them reach their home Helped them stay alive.
We lost some. Some lost their jobs. Virus tried to destroy human will. It didn't know we were made of steel.
We persevered,we fought,we strived Though we made mistakes, made some slights We wore masks We wore them with pride In this wretched quarantine. We were one in this fight
This pandemic Stopped the schools But through online classes And teacher's will We somehow made it through
A word of gratitude to sanitation workers The unsung heroes of this lockdown Working in these tough conditions You all made us proud
And somehow by following the rules With sheer discipline We made it through,we made it through This one hell of a pandemic
And now we are slowly limping back to life The past year tested us all We lost some Lost some fights I hope this year we'll win the war
It will take some time To restart normal life But if we persevere,fight enough I know that this year will be bright Dark clouds will give way to sunlight.
only the tough survive. Is it really that simple, and so very primal? Has humankind over complicated itself to the point, where when we get a simple outcome, it muddles our brain?Because it seems like these adversities that I am faced with, and forced to go with, is just what everyone else in the world is too. Life is a beautiful thing to be given, but you also have to act like it is. Everything that is tangible to the eye to see, it is here, because it's been able to survive through hardships. The small, seemingly magical moments that break-up the discomfort of the everyday, which is what makes everything worth living through.Even in this pandemic, and universal upheaval, there have been small moments of bliss for myself, and the collective included.
For the last few thousand years, humans have continued to trespass, venture into inhospitable areas, burning down, meddling, or just poking around in natures complex, natural chemical laboratories.
The more humans encroach upon the natural world; the more exposed we are to a highly complex eco system; a system that has evolved over millions of years to support a huge diversity of life in which humans play a tiny part.
As a species we struggle to survive the mosquitoes, not to mention the trillions of other diverse insects, animals, fawner and flora we are now disrupting and introducing to our populations, is it any wonder so many of us are dying.
This disease is a symptom of our consumption and lack of contentment?
Driving at night and watching the city lights flash by, Going to the lake and napping in the sun, the water quiet just to let us sing, Walking when it gets dark and not caring about the morning to come, Watching flocks of birds departing for far far away, Breakfast with my mom outside while the air is still as fresh as the grass, Those nights we wanted a huge feast and ended up being too many to fit in tiny kitchens, My body breaking to the music in crowds, Bus rides that made my *** hurt for hours, Sleeping in on sundays, knowing i'll walk to school when the next cold day comes, Chosing to live everyday, Not simply existing because I have to hold on for later,
