Lessons from the pandemic

No one had predicted such an occurrence

A catastrophe leading to worldwide sufferance

But there are lessons hidden in each calamity

The pandemic has delivered a blow to human vanity

Our survival instinct that lay dormant

Has resurfaced to deal with the torment..

New revelations, new lessons have appeared

While we navigate the waters with hope and fear

**

The predictability around which we had our lives built

Received towards uncertainty a major tilt

New questions to which the internet does not answers possess

Emerge each day, it is no longer possible to obsess

Over trying to control each aspect of our lives

In the midst of ambiguity we have learnt to thrive..

We’ve had a glimpse of the harrowing life

Led by unfortunate victims of war and strife

**

Let me now say how I have been affected as a person-

Thrown in the throes of social isolation

I have discovered the rejuvenating power of silence

I have discovered within me a well of resilience..
