Covid-19
By this time 2019 the onslaught had begun..
devastating attack on mankind not carried out by guns..
just a virus, tiny yet deadly ravaging the world..
not an equal monster in decades, Covid-19 it was called.

mysteriously crept into our world, inexplicable origin..
lurking around rails, trails and air just to gain entry..
wrecking down all systems immune, nervous and circulatory..
sniffles life out of victims at the early stages, men was scary.

left us so terrified  in our towns and in our cities..
grounded and brought to a halt economic activities..
built up a partition of no solid material..
amongst us all, rich, poor and even the influential.

Once crowded streets in its wake were lonely and desserted..
nice playground activities and symposiums neglected..
for the dread of the global monsterous virus..
oh! no! never again we hope we beat the virus.

It took from us loved ones both promising and elderly..
frightening mode of operation, collapsing the lungs steadily..
trailing wails world all over from the healthcare facilities..
universal pandemonium, we were overwhelmed seemingly.

Emotionally traumatising was the unpleasant experience..
of watching its victims gasping in the midst of abundance..
I cried like many many others seeing a menace to existence..
and all we did was pray for return of peaceful ambience.

till date still place a limit on human interactions..
medical practitioners working their ***** off..
to get a cure for it although now there's vaccination..
was an era in human history, covid-19 what a distraction!

love fills life
For living life to the fullest...
enjoy and truly feel its essence...
I think I know what's keenest...
assuredly the key is love.

it strongly binds yet it liberates...
uplifting souls to high domains...
a reason for living most times generates...
you know what I mean if you've truly loved.

its absence can make life seem so bare...
feels dejecting no one cares...
love doses genuinely clears despair...
in any way try to show some love.

the one thing that can heal the world...
universal, it cuts across all tongues...
but can't always be expressed in words...
indeed the greatest, yes  it's love.

some think it's found in sharing mornings...
one feeling I know rejuvenates...
for sure it's one of all life's cravings...
for it fills life when its truly love.

love in its true form is always pure...
be it for kids or the special one...
for family,friends or mother nature...
you're blessed if you've truly found love.

a feeling that's for angels only...
godly stance to those who bear...
am sure it transcends this earthly dwelling...
larger than life is the feeling of love.

Grateful
So many things am grateful for...
the gift of life and so much more...
with eyes to see nature's splendour...
lungs breathing air so fresh and pure...

with wits and mind put things together..
friends and loved ones around the corner...
a place to lay each day i retire...
and able to dream and to aspire!
