Meetings are online
School is online
Social distancing is Alive
What if, meeting friends become through online chats
What if bunking classes is turning off a laptop
What if a relationship is a call through WhatsApp
What if traveling the world is only by pictures
What if working is limited to your room at home
What if the world stops right here ...
Working inside homes
Getting food to our door steps
Unemployment rising up high
Greetings of good morning turning to a text
The taste of fast foods dying aside
The long road trips, packing and dressing up
Is to go to bed..
We are turning inhuman
Because, earth is closed my friends
It’s all because of you
Life is heading off to be different
You are not only losing your minds
But look around,
You’ve lost everything around you as well
Things are getting better
But remember where we were
Here’s a reminder to never harm the Earth !!
It’s just a warning sign

Yes, Sammani, I agree this is a wake up call to all of humanity to stop harming the Earth, and start caring for it. It is like the Earth shut down for awhile so it could heal. Pollution has already reduced as have co2 emissions. These are just two examples. I hope we learnt from this. Thank you for writing this.
