Covid-19 ruined everything

The world will no longer by the same

Whether we have lost a loved one

Or been bombarded with bad news

Or alter our behaviours

Many are gloomy

Many are frightened

Some are still in denial

Some have lost hope

The world is coming to an end

It is soon to be gathered up

As a mother gathers her chicks

As a shepherd herds the sheep

There is a chance, still

A call

A choice

Before the end comes

Like a thief

The timing is unknown

But unlike night

We are not entirely in the dark

We lit our lamps waiting, for

What was promised millenniums ago

He gave us a chance

A call

A choice
