It’s All Paused

its-all-paused

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.
