Mixed Emotions


Mixed emotions

Covid is no ordinary virus,
but a muse,
that's here to stay for us,
it sure will create,
many more poets.

Historical moment has come,
to be or not be is the theme,
would our race sail through this tsunami,
creating another history,
won through solidarity,
and humanity,
else it's end of our story.

Time to stay inside and worry,
It's their time to make merry.

Anupam thank you so much for the lovely appreciation. Be safe.

Anupam Mitu from MUMBAI on June 25, 2020:

How I missed such excellent poems of yours! A great poet you are! You should meet Chetan Bhagat and say him that you have kept the legacy :-)

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on April 24, 2020:

Thanks Nithya. Fingers crossed.

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on April 24, 2020:

Mixed emotions - an apt title. The virus is wreaking havoc, but no point worrying. I hope a vaccine comes out soon, keeping fingers crossed.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on April 17, 2020:

Thanks Brenda. You are right. We need to be careful further on and follow the rules like we do while driving on the road.

Interesting composition.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 02, 2020:

There is alot to write about, but it doesn't do any good to worry.

Worry just makes everything seem worse.

Nice write.

Devika thanks for the visit and appreciation. This is historical what we are going through. Hope we will all succeed or live with the distancing and extra cautious life style we have to learn till there is a cure.

Devika Primic on April 02, 2020:

Hi hari lots to ponder on the virus talks and you show that here.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on March 27, 2020:

Thanks tiyasha. I hope the same but lockdowns are not going to help. We gave to be extra careful and help others too to be.

Tiyasha Maitra from Gurgaon on March 27, 2020:

Nice poem. Such turmoil and fear. Hope we come out of this soon and safe. Take care.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on March 26, 2020:

Thanks John. The virus will be changing our social habits.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 26, 2020:

Good poem Hari. I do think the virus will create more poets and people being confined to home gives them more time to write. I hope we emerge at the end of this as a better world and more united.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on March 26, 2020:

Thanks Ruby. You too take care and be safe.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 26, 2020:

Our world has certainly changed. Will we ever return to a normal life? Your poem, Mixed Emotions says it all. Be brave. Stay safe.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on March 26, 2020:

Yes Nell. Things have changed for ever for us humans. We are probably being given another chance to survive and evolve for betterment of every living thing in the planet.

May be stop calling ourselves the Latin name homosapien (wise man). We have screwed it all.

Nell Rose from England on March 26, 2020:

I used to love reading history, now we are in the middle of probably the biggest thing to ever happen in the world I think I will change my hobbies to knitting! great poem, and something to think about.

Hari Prasad S (author) from Bangalore on March 26, 2020:

Thanks Lorna. It's going to bring about a change that will be revolutionary.

Lorna Lamon on March 26, 2020:

I enjoyed this poem Hari and time will tell if we can defeat it by uniting for the common good of all, or ignoring the warnings and facing the consequences.
