STRONGER THAN BEFORE
Once upon a time in a pandemic
When money and power failed; confusion at its peak.
Car parks, harbors and hangars on holiday,
Alas! A virus with wings has taken the day.
From Asia to America, even Africa;
Antarctica and Europe, and as far as Australia
A deadly virus from Wuhan, the greatest threat to man.
Every nation, far and wide,
Sought for some divine shelter to hide
The bereavement of families on the rise
We all ran out of ideas, even wisdom couldn't suffice.
High and low, the rich and the poor all quarantined in hope
Perhaps in the coming days, we'd find grace to cope
Our good humor faded, as death became the fear of all
No parties, classes, movies or worship days,
Our homes have now become the only safe place
Wash your hands, wear a mask, our new anthem.
Who would have thought, perhaps not even one
That one day, the world will completely shut down
Swallowed up in a mess of economic meltdown
Whereas, a careful reflection on the fragileness of life
Has led us all to rely on the Giver life
As the days go by, we hope for a change of story
Our economy and health gradually finding recovery
The virus came dreadful and frightening
But we believe that through God, we shall overcome
