A year called "2020"

The world was merry, calm and excited, Ushering in a new year, with big plans, Expectations and some little drama, Little did we know of wuhan's gift unto the race of mankind.....

Born in the dark of the nights,. Nutured and bred in the far east, the queen of death broke forth to Conquer the world... Not with bullets or armor tanks,. Just her little touch was enough to do the harm.

Cold hearted without remorse,. She slaughtered every one she met on her way, No mercy for women or children,. No preference for race or color, she brought doom everywhere she laid.

With no use of technology,. She infiltrated all media,. With no airship she crossed every boarder,. With no army, she slaughtered thousands daily,. With no face she appeared in every screen we can see,. With no power everly rule trembled at her feet,.

She walked out streets with no hands,. She took everyone hostage in our homes,. We only know her by the name:. COVID-19...

Who is this messenger of death? Who had no respect for the place of worship , who had no regard for even the messengers of God.. Her fear closed our places of worship, school, and parks... How did it get so bad?

How do we win this war? A villian we can't stop with bullets or ammunition..A curse that is everywhere without fear... The world became still, empty, and cold. All the early vibes died even before it even started..

Now i believe this:. No one knows tomorrow, if we had, we would have prepared for this.. Now is d time we stand as one,. Through the queen brought turmoil, sorrow and mayhem.. Together we put aside our differences and fight her as one....

Helping each other to gain back the world from her grip, And setting our people free. The battle is for all, cover your face.. Maintain your distance,. Maintain a consistent hygiene,. The battle is almost won, what we can gain is greater than what we have lost.. I stand as a citizen of the world , and I say keep the world safe and keep yourself safe.. # STAY SAFE.
