Two words which once retained our feline friends
Or astronauts returning from the moon,
Now bear a threat which life itself suspends
As humankind is locked in a cocoon.
Restrained within the confines of our home
Deprived of freedom's customary range,
With meagre opportunities to roam,
We brace ourselves to undergo real change.
Yet breezes of fresh hope revive the air
As new priorities are gaining ground,
Regenerated hearts begin to care
And acts of generosity abound.
Though there will be disquietude and tears,
May we in faith surmount our present fears.
