Coronavirus Why by Damini Awoyiga




coronavirus I ask why


Why are you here ?


Why are you making people fear ?


Why did you come

at this time of year?


2020 was supposed to be

New beginnings


All of us living together


I don't think any kid my age


Has ever experienced


Anything like this before


Things have happened before but

No


nothing like this


Coronavirus


Or should I say


COVID -19


You came on a plain November day


To claim our human race


Not just in one place


You infected


Our mothers fathers sisters brothers sons and daughters


What if we had stayed home ?


Would all these people still have been infected ?



Coffee shops saying


We only do drive-thrus


Don't let them in

They might infect you


All around the world


Cities are Ghost towns


No people on the streets


Malls empty with no sound


No children roaming around


They are all in their homes safe and sound


Grocery store shelves bare


Cause all we did was prepare


Prepare

Prepare


prepare


Prepare get hand sanitizer


People rushed

People rushed to get to the stores


But at the end of the hustle


people saw


Unimaginable prices for hand sanitizer


Then it was no bottles left


Nothing to spare


So all we did was stare


Stare into the open spaces


Stare into the dying faces

places filled with faces covered with masks


Smells of sanitizer


Roaming the air like smoke


From wildfires


Governments


And


Schools


Saying


Work from home..


Stay away from other people..


Stay..


In..


Your...


Homes...


Scientists looking for solutions


But still, cases arise


But we can try to prevent other people from dying or getting infected by self-isolating/staying home

Many people have died worldwide


But What more will you take?


What more should we give?


All we want is to live


For life to get back to normal
