Mixed Emotions

Updated on March 26, 2020

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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
