On Peace: Healing

Stanza 1
We drop our heads as a withered plant

Troubled and inconvenient like a bird hanging on a line;

Involuntarily restrained from marking our regular chores, in the open heaven

Seeking refuge behind bolted doors,

Impatiently awaiting the Passover.

Stanza 2
Our world is sick and under Corona siege,

We are restlessly searching for balm.

Till then, we belong to all but fellowship with none;

We know our people but trust none near us;

Proximity without contact now becomes the new found motto.

Stanza 3

We are the citizens of the world;

Of this we have never understood better than now

We aren’t doomed for this also shall pass

We are the inhabitants of this realm, uniting forces and shared passion

COVID-19 pandemic is sickening

But our joint faith and action is healing

The storm is thick and raging

But we can and shall weather the storm

And restore our withered plant.
