The Things We Took For Granted That Kept Us Going During Life In Times Of Covid

Posted: July 8, 2020

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Life in times of Covid-19 is a watershed moment for Humankind; let’s introspect, and take forward only that which will sustain us through this.

Covid will vanish in thin air one fine day;
The life lessons it has imparted will be here to stay.

The deserted streets will be brimming with life once again;
As the resplendent Sun emerges after the incessant rain.

Our great warriors will once again rise to fame;
But this time perhaps our life will never be the same.

The things we so often took for granted;
Rightly proved to be the ones we most wanted.

In the days ahead, with caution we shall spend;
And uncurbed spending will meet its end.

The pledge will be to live in harmony with Mother Nature;
Henceforth the priority will be to nurture and not just capture.

We shall begin to live with great passion like never before;
And strive to bring the cause of humanity to the fore.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind;
Whereas one hand for another makes the entire world kind.

Human life is but a priceless gift from the heaven above;
We must endeavour to eschew hatred and spread love.

Self Reliance is going to be the way forward;
Self-centeredness in all probability will take us one step backward.

Behind every dark cloud, there is a silver lining;
Let us rise to the occasion and stop whining.

Social distancing has been touted as the universally accepted norm;
Till the time a vaccine is designed in some or the other form;
To save humankind from this insidious storm.

At the end Humanity will Survive;
The economy in all certainty will revive;
It is only kindness which will help us thrive.
