Perhaps, mankind is yet to grow enough, to defeat the vicissitudes of time. In a span of few months, the corona [meaning crown] virus, not even one hundredth of a millimetre has brought powerful nations to a standstill.
Spreading faster than wildfires, it has pushed Governments, organisations and the entire humanity to the limits of our energy.
As I pen this, I earnestly hope that all of my readers are doing good. Take care of yourself, physically and mentally. Be strong. This too shall pass…
Still, in the silence of death.
The lights are out,
Its dark, cold.
Damp are the empty streets,
All as the crown reigns on…
All locked in safe walls,
At homes across a centum nations,
Praying, that the crown
Don’t come their way.
Are you afraid ? Am I ?
That the march of the crown,
Would be too much a trial,
For God’s greatest creation ?
Oh, worse have we seen,
And this we shall overcome.
In a tight embrace, shall we hold,
Each other in this courageous battle.
In the flame of our minds,
Shall we light the torch of unity,
Across borders, across oceans,
Bound by the blood of love.
Sapiens, wake. Be bold.
This crown shall fall,
Before the march of us – soldiers,
In this battle for survival.
Trying times; but the crown shall fall,
Fall shall it, before, the might
Of humanity’s innate strength,
To love and learn.
