I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Outwit Covid-19 is about her fear of coronavirus. She wears her mask and uses hand sanitizer trying to stay safe. It is difficult for her to hide from something she cannot see. She worries about the one's who do not believe it is real putting her in danger. She trusts God to fight her battles. This calms her with a sense of peace.
"Outsmart Covid-19" by World Health Organization
Fear weighs heavy on her mind
trying to outwit the rage of Covid-19,
daunting her mask,
constantly dabbing gel on her dried out hands,
hoping to stay safe.
Feeling like she is stuck
between two fires
hiding from a monster she cannot see,
as the numbers spike
with many lying on their death beds,
suffering in isolation
waiting for a cure.
Worrying about the people
who do not believe in God,
who claim they need to see a miracle first,
taking nothing at face value
putting the rest of us in harm’s way.
Trusting in her heavenly father
to he fight her battles,
for he removes all her worries,
letting her know
the flames cannot consume her soul,
calming her with a sense of peace.
