Turn the Tide


A pandemic of epic proportions
Changing our way of life
Making us don masks
As we ingrain into a lifestyle of retreat and hide

What circulates on the news is misinformation
Riling up citizens through false narratives
Putting the country into disarray
Chaos about the coronavirus has seized the day

Pondering the future because the unrest is unbearable
But I cannot let my thoughts turn into a cloud of hate
Facing the darkness
Yelling “Light will guide the way”

I lay and pray
Even though the gates are locked
A feeling comes over
Paralyzing me to the core

Shake off the sorrow of the world
Let the grace of your heart warm the soul
Speak and act with energy to empathize with the whole
That is how we will grow to save the world
