366 DAYS

By Marymartin Okoabu:

It started with a pandemic,
That shook the world terribly,
Many were made anaemic,
And many died tragically.

A lockdown was announced,
That sent many scurrying indoors,
But still they pronounced,
More cases with lesser cures.

Starved of their freedom,
Overfed with boredom,
Many were left clueless,
The masses made helpless.

Then came hunger,
Striking with much anger,
It turned many into robbers,
While some scavenged for leftovers.

Depression creeped in slowly,
Suicidal thoughts tasted so sweet,
The mind became unfriendly,
To the body that encaged it.

It was a long year,
Of loss, pain and fear,
But hope comes alive,
Reawakened by the spring of life.
