Take Your Part: Stay at Home (Covid-19 Pandemic)


He loves to write. It is his passion. It is also his time of reflection and a time to discover more about life.


Our health workers and other frontlines have been battling this pandemic night and day. They have been risking their lives to win this battle. Others have even sacrificed their breath while in service. So, please, let us take our part in this war: Stay at Home.

Stay At Home (An Acrostic)

Save the lives of many
Though the urge to be out might be plenty
As you set foot outside
You should think of it to set aside.

A 14-day to a 1-month ECQ extension
To the existing lockdown as an addition

Hold still and sacrifice a bit.
One day soon, we can enjoy ourselves outside big.
Make no complaints, but only say thanks.
Elevate your worries to God who never forsakes


We have an invisible enemy. And, as you go out, you endanger not only your lives but also the lives of the people you surround and encounter. Also, you are adding a burden to the difficult life of our health workers. Besides, the one day that you have been out could make the situation even worse. It could mean an addition to the days of the existing community quarantine. As a result, businesses, industries, works, and other services would continue to be inoperational. It could mean more hunger not only to your family but also to the whole community. Lastly, the government could not afford to feed you more. So, stay at home.

Thanks. I really hope so. If we all want to end this very soon, we have to adhere to what the local government is imposing as measures to stem this pandemic.
