The Times We Live In




The Times We Live in


Strange times we live in.

Once jovial places of interactions,

now deserted in fear,

Proximity that brought us near,

The Warmth, closeness

Bring fears of plague.

Distances offer safety,

To contend with isolation

Seem fate of all.

The unsureness

Of life, future

Became never-ending agony.

In waves of death,

Mourning and cries,

Precious, fickle life

Hang by the strand.

Hoping to survive,

The next onslaught.
