Having a brush with the dreaded pandemic made me delve deeper into how we take our divine bodies and mother nature for granted. I felt a deep sense of gratitude for my body and acknowledged how it silently supports and rears us through life. I expressed my feelings in this verse.
As we smothered mother nature, felling trees and choking rivers; she gasped, pled for her life, we humans dreamt of building empires. We forgot the tables turn one day, we reap what we sow; Now gasping for breath, her pain we feel, to the Universe, we gently bow. An invisible enemy gave a lesson for life, brought the world down on its knees; the richest of rich, the poorest of poor, praying and hoping for the storm to cease. Learn the lessons the pandemic taught, to value everything you are blessed with; your body, your breath, the actual gifts, the luxuries you run after, a myth. Aim for success, do your best, achieve everything your heart desires; But not at the cost of caring for yourself, It's all that your body requires. Care for yourself and care for nature, It’s simply no big deal; Say a word of gratitude, for each cell that helps you heal; The storm will calm, clouds disperse, making way for sunshine bright; A dawn full of promises awaits, to envelope the world in its light.
