All of a sudden the roaring horns of metropolis,
Tiny screams of new blooming flowers of the school
Efforting to grasp the letters of literature as their first outside activity,
The non-glanceable chatter of many came to a standstill.
The sudden flare of an unseen contagion
Escalated in a vigorous manner out of imagination,
Engulfing the superior earthlings with an active lava of illness,
Gifting pain of demise to one and the other and then innumerable.
Attempting to hold the snuffing scale of living life,
The law regulators rescripted to have a time of lockdown and stay inside.
Cutting off the unperformed composition of art piece and undone of every field,
From the little one till the aged of all
Is bound to stay inside their walls.
The jerk of ailment caused regular regimes to fade away,
Safeguarded by a surprising stroke of clock sway.
The day-to-day hustles of every being
Got evaporated like a shot of a pallet gun,
Demanding for the offering of toddler’s fun.
A single tik-tok of the time manager clock
Is now a long year in this globe,
The hectic workplace of some and loving passions of the remaining
Are all in the same belt waiting for another grand launching.
Families are getting time for themselves,
Living appendages are once again procuring ownself,
Following a string of introspection
And realising the meaning of holding a life full of love.
Buried artistry woke up,
Sowing joy of satisfaction from kid to big.
Dancers are tapping feet with the beats,
Melody creators are designing healing notes to treat,
While the color gamers are constructing monuments of remembrance
To this time of acute pain and stillness.
The nature is healing from its unwanted smell,
Gaining pristine as before and more consciousness as well.
With prayers of normality to return
And peace for the departed souls,
Seeking to rest them in the house of Almighty
And strength for us to fight this pandemic with unity.
