A Poem to give us hope after the Wuhan Corona virus Pandemic.

1. Fields of much promise, but no grass and no soil the world not so round getting flat and shapeless necks stretched for faces to look up to heaven and arms open for a new salvation song. But God have seemed deaf and then gone quarantine not to make the waters and the skies blue again for the long awaited morning to come and shine, the light of hope and peace to us once again. Nature has stopped its breakfast to our souls Giving us sharp bones that has torn our guts To glorify death that has ambushed the world And nations stripped as they fall down on their bare knees. Life, is subdued, guilty of racketeering Hades wears two hundred thousand plus, black crowns Happiness has partially lost its only gene But we stay strong, firm for the healing of the land…… because CHORUS It’s all about you….. It’s all about me Cleaning the wounds from the deepest cut to the bruises of our hearts we stand again It’s all about us….. It’s all about you…. It’s all about me Standing on the remains of what death has done to us all, we’ve won just because It’s all about us. 2. Three months away, Glenn plans to go to France in just few weeks is Helen’s due promotion Fatima's papa works hard for expansion and James Chunli awaits his forthcoming child soon Sanchez will be an undergraduate Suzie has the ring and just bought the white gown Waves of misfortune has stopped most of these plans Sudden rapture, taking loved ones now deep down Darkness re-invent itself with more teeth For humanity to face a tough jury, to stain the garment of history with man’s blood. Fear, sorrow and pain, all polluting the air The weak quickly falls, the mighty falls harder From wuhan to Italy, spain and America Africa, let’s rise and beat this enemy Then so we prove, our immunity comes from love… because REPEAT CHORUS…… 3. Combined, we are badly hit by three wars On the mind, lungs and life, the foe stays as boss To captured families, the jab is so gross Life is cooked, anxiety and pain, all the sauce Blessings of a new year, in abrupt pause We’ve cried out and prayed, death still comes with a clause Blow, that is air-bourne, leaving behind broken jaws Unseen, yet travels through borders on a horse Lives get missing as it journeys its course How can a size close to nothing, be the cause? Condemning survival to be on all fours Nations seeking protection, behind closed doors be on a lock-down, or be counted a loss We’ve always prevailed and bigger than the litmus We’ll come out stronger, a defeated virus Let’s hold hands and heal, the world is void without us…. Because CHORUS INTERLUDE Let the..........sunrise...........shine on us we can't.......be broken......history shows let the.........whole world......heal its soul no more.......the fire........stronger we......are. [Higher Key] It’s all about you [Yes, you…. You are stronger (Choir)] It’s all about me [Yes, I…… I’m an overcomer (Choir)] Cleaning the wounds from the deepest cut to the bruises of our hearts, we stand again [huuuuuuuuuuuuuu (simultaneously from choir)], it’s all about us [It’s all, it’s all about us (from choir)]. It’s all about you [yes, you…. You are stronger (choir)] It’s all about me [Yes, I….. I’m an overcomer (Choir)] Standing on the remains of what death has done to us all, we’ve won just because [huuuuuuuuuuuuuu (simultaneously from choir)], it’s all about us [It’s all, it’s all about us (from choir)]. Repeat 3 times REPEAT 2ND PART OF CHORUS SLOWLY BY SOLO.

Covid is nature's way of healing itself...it will cease as soon as it is healed.

Funom, you capably capture the negative spirit of Coronavirus, and yet, instead of despairing and giving up, you encourage all of us and point the way to the healing. Would love to hear these words set to music! ~ Regards and take care. // paul

what an offering of love and encouragement. Thank you Brother in Christ, FUNOM. You were quiet more than 3 weeks, and THIS is a welcome back gift for us (It's all about you, It's all about me - so long as Jesus started the song). Thanks for your GENEROUS words on my Candy Cogitation. You are a gem. shalom, shalom: we shall overcome

Nicely written, Funom, I like the verse, "breakfast to our souls, " and yes, "We’ve cried out and prayed, death still comes with a clause." It will be soon when this is over and people will come out changed.. I hope one is, the love of family and friends. Like they say, you don't appreciate it until you don't have it anymore. Hugs Eve
