All she needed for her

Work has been gotten except

One and was invited by a friend


This international friend she met

When she was in her

Country with the non-governmental organization


It has been a while

They see each other and

She missed her so dearly


Thus, she invited her over

For an international function that

Would take place in another country


News of SARS-2 has been

On social media and people

Have been cautioned on traveling


Her parents and fiancé talked

To her about the trip

That she should cancel it


The red flag has been

Raised by world health organization

And other health agencies ‘cross globe


She brushed it aside as

One of those things for

Red flags are raised daily


In addition to it that she

Was desperate to get that thing

Which would make her work balanced


She wants to get it over with

So that she would be

Able to step up in life


When her fiancé and others

Discovered that she’s made up

Her heart on the trip, they withdraw


They left her to satisfy

Her heart longings on her

Pursuits committing her unto Lord’s hands


She was like a deaf dog about

To get lost that would not

Yield to the hunter’s whistles neither calls


She got to the place,

Met her friend, they really had

Nice time together at the international summit


They relive the past together, it

Was memorable time for both

Young women. They were full of life


She got what she came for,

Uploaded those messages to her work

Sent it through email to her supervisor


It was approved and she did the

Work there, sending it by courier to

The department and management.


For she did not have it in

Mind returning to her country after

The international summit she left for another summit


It is an opportunity that must not

Slip her by she reasoned. It was

There she got infected with covid-19


She was isolated after testing

Positive to the disease and

Would not be allowed to return home


She eventually did not return

To her country alive. Though her

Work was in order as it has been reviewed


She has been graded and was

Said to be the best among all

Candidates that submitted their works


And she won 10 million dollars

But she was not able to receive

The price, it was given to her parents


Her parents while receiving the

Price says, “this has been her

Dream, she has worked all her days for this


But death has prevented her from

Reaping the reward of her labor

It is a pity. Wiping the droplets of tears away


They were helped off the

Stage by the people, and fiancé watching

On television was crying profusely.


Note: SARS-2 means Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome 2 now called Covid-19.
