WHAT COVID-19 HAS DONE TO US?
Jade E. Limsiaco-9/15/2021
OH, WHAT A JOYOUS DAY IT WAS,
WHEN EVERY ONE WAS FREE TO ROAM AROUND DAILY
UNTIL EVERYTHING WAS PUT ON HOLD TODAY
WHEN MOST PEOPLE DID NOT HEED THE WARNINGS
GIVEN TO US ABOUT COVID 19 THESE PAST DAYS
NOW, NO ONE CAN MOVE AROUND FREELY
ONE MUST WEAR A MASK TO ROAM AROUND THE CITY
ALCOHOL, SANITIZERS MUST BE SPRAYED ON OUR HANDS TO KEEP THE VIRUS AT BAY
FOR NO ONE CAN TELL IF HE OR SHE IS INFECTED ALREADY.
OH, WHAT A DRASTIC CHANGE WE NOW SEE
THE AIR WE BREATHE IS NOW NOT HEALTHY
FOR IT IS THROUGH THE AIR THAT THE VIRUS HAS
A FREE RIDE ALREADY
READY TO INFLICT ANYONE WHO IS NOT WARY.
THEN IF ONE IS NOT PROTECTED PROPERLY BY THE VACCINES MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL OF US TODAY
EVERYTHING GOES DOWNHILL EVEN IF HE OR SHE IS NOT READY
THE UNTIMELY DEMISE OF PEOPLE, YOUNG AND OLD ARE PLENTY
FOR ALL WERE NOT AWARE OF THE DEADLY EFFECT THIS COVID 19 AND ITS VARIANCES CARRY.
OH, WHAT HAD COVID 19 DONE TO US TODAY?
WE ARE LIKE PRISONERS IN OUR OWN HOMES NOW A DAYS
DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND PARANOIA HAVE RAPIDLY SPREAD AMONGST US THESE DAYS.
FOR ONE IS AFRAID TO STEP OUT FOR HE OR SHE MIGHT GET INFECTED SAD TO SAY
IS THERE NO END TO THE HAVOC THESE COVID 19 AND ITS VARIANCES HAVE BROUGHT TO US TODAY?
IS THIS MAN MADE OR THE WRATH OF GOD THAT HAVE BROUGHT DOUBTTO OUR CONFUSED MINDS THESE DAYS?
NEVERTHELESS, ONE MUST ALWAYS BE READY AND PRAY HARD TO GOD FOR PROTECTION
AND FOR SAFETY AGAINST THESE VIRUSES THAT HAVE PLAGUED US FOR A LONG TIME
