Like a bird that has injured its wings
Like a caterpillar that is yet to fly
Like a plant that awaits the rain,
I am here, waiting for this time to pass;
Waiting for this time to pass
A time where I should be dancing in the rain
Twirling with joy as happily as those birds and butterflies in a warm Summer’s day
But no- I am here, waiting silently for this time to pass.
All this waiting has slowly opened my eyes
My eyes that were once opened but never truly awake
To realise that forever being on the go is like life losing life But yes, I realise it is best now for me to stay;
I close the doors; I shoo away those close to me
I shoo away those to keep them safe
I have realised that the life I’ve known will never be the same;
The cruel game of Corona has certainly crushed our ways.
Corona, or should I call you Cowardly Corona?
You have stripped me of my dreams
You have shredded my visions into meaningless pieces
And now you dare to tear the strength that has ever so diligently been built year after year.
Just you wait, I know I have closed my doors
I know I have put my life on hold
I know my dreams and visions are set on pause
But at least I’m not a coward- I am ready to give a fight;
I will mend my wings
I will grow into a butterfly
I will stand tall with a luscious green glow
All that stands between the now and then is time, just you wait.
My dreams weren’t stripped
My visions aren’t torn
And I will never let you tackle my strength
My strength has only doubled behind these lonely doors.
Dear Cowardly Corona, I dare you to ask what the future holds
I dare you to question my rightful worth
I have answers that will frighten you to your core
I have answers that will rattle you beyond belief.
Life after Corona, I cannot wait—
I appreciate everything and more
I now know that I am stronger than ever
I now know that nothing can beat love;
Family, Friends, Faith- three words that have shown the light
A light that shows what three can do
A love that links us closer with time
I guess I was never alone, I guess I’ve learnt a worthy lesson- the power of all is better than one.
Life after Corona, I see a blank canvas
A second chance to build my dreams and visions
A second chance to use this experience as a compass to life
A compass that will lead me to blue skies filled with hope, determination, and drive.
