Corona times

Corona Times

Never knew I would witness a time
To see life pause for a while
To sit home and not go out
To be still yet always carrying a doubt

Why did I have to witness such a time
Where a hug or a handshake would become a crime
Why people could no longer be together
Looks like we are isolated forever

We are losing our elders, a generation we most cherish
Is it our doing, for which they are to perish?
We are not in a jail yet it feels like a sentence
Is it because we are not thinking about repentance?

Every day people die of this disease, hundreds of them
God please have mercy on us, we will repent
We cry, we pray, we ask for forgiveness
Please for once, take away this illness
