Few Believe

The numbers spike ever higher Tiny sparks now raging fires The unseen killer makes his rounds Headaches throb, chests pound Streets deserted, sidewalks too I wear a mask at home with you A nation's nightmare, no end in sight Few believe it'll be alright

This says it all Gershon. A friend said this will become a distant memory, I think not. Life is forever changed.

- Congratulations on yuor p.o.t.d., Gershon :) - We do not use mask ... although this is very scary ... or as you describe it as a dark nightmare ... there will always be viruses in the air ... clean hands and distance ... are you sick, stay home ... life must go on ... - (*I don't think Jesus or the Devil has created this ) - // Anne-Lise :)

As the year 2019 ended, I never imagined this would be how I would spend the year 2020. How all of the World would spend these moments. Masked and trying to stay safe- from a virus. I know, when the time is right- "it'll be alright" Congratulations Gershon, on Poem of the Day. My best to you. ~ Brandy

Wow what an amazing poem!! We all need to believe that Jesus Christ will come again and judge everyone for what they did. The invisible enemy is the Devil who is really above the invisible enemy. God Bless you and congratulations on your POTD!
