On The Ground

On The Ground

pandemic is still on the ground
it broke our hearts, toppled us down
dreams were stolen
hopes were broken

our educational system changed
it made us strangers, distant
as classes were all via the so called
online learning

as we are joyfully slowly adapting
to the new normal, reunited once more
another pandemic is on the ground again
we are raging a war, the barbaric kind of war

what has become of humanity?
have we forgotten who we truly are?
what has become of us?
aren’t we tired of brutally killing one another?

there’s something on the ground again
it will break our hearts, it will topple us down
dreams will be stolen
hopes will be broken

and the future will again be uncertain.

    Heart-breaking, Mich. Disease, war, lives destroyed, people displaced… I’m beginning to wonder if this will ever end.
    On a happier note though, big day tomorrow! I have “Mich’s book out” writ large in my diary πŸ™‚

  6. The future is always uncertain and we as human beings have today lost our humility and compassion. Even after the pandemic that destroyed so many we are not learning and now war is on our heads. Very nicely said, Mich.
