The Nightmare Of Doom

May 20, 2020

The Nightmare Of Doom

Day breaks and what would I look out in my humble abode

Not the sunrise and chirping of the birds in my balcony,

But the folks hasten to dwell home Ante Meridiem

O Mother Nature, why is this happening every day?

The bewilderment of this pandemic brings out a fear of darkness,

An extreme fear of reconcile oneself to the trumpet of doom.

Rampant spreading widely with the chaos of mind,

I can see the world dying slowly and hopelessly.

The deity might have hurled his intensified anger on mankind,

For making our mother land polluted to its summit level.

While the creator nevertheless has an intensive notion,

To make this terrene a better place to live.

Our victors withstanding to combat the epidemic,

Doctors sacrifice their brave hearts in peril.

Guards tirelessly protecting the anthropoid,

The warriors help the altruistic with great love.

O mankind! The planet is healing to a better cause,

Nature is green and the seas are crystal clear.

Alas! It is a pandemic you must be aware of,

So wake me up when the nightmare is departed.
