Frontline workers

No words accurate
To describe the death rate
Human lives at stake
Even breathing a grave mistake

Quarantine the patient
14 day isolation
Only available Solution
Even if jab taken

Rules dont apply
To Doctors on duty
They too have a family
For them now secondary

The Nurses on call
Give it their all
Service to humanity
Epitome of sanctity

Frontline worker
Knocking on deaths door
Care their very core
Clarity in every pore

Nameless and faceless
Sacrifice their bonafide
Price of their servitude
Mankind not big enough to measure its magnitude

Worship and Celebrate
Their quality innate
Put themselves behind all
To treat a Pandemic on front of all

Work done by them
Expecting nothing in return
Environment of calamity
Doing their calling calmly

Immortal status achieved
For only one reason
Future generations must know of their contribution
By Example they showed
Stopping death at its door

Spouse and children
Of no relevance
Safety of fellow humans
Engulfs their hearts and minds

Fear and uncertainty
Existing universally
Balancing it wonderfully
Rest living peacefully

Bow our heads
Heart soul and rest
Words or actions
Cannot define our indebtedness

The study of theology
Questions solved permanently
Fictional or reality
He bows his head willingly
In you he sees Divinity
