God! Show us a rainbow somewhere,
This whole thing is getting too much to bear.
A ray of hope fighting,
dark shadow of clouds fear-inciting.
A little firefly in a white angelic coat,
Trying to spread cheer, keeping faiths afloat.
Some humane faces trying to give their best,
Rather than just be mute spectators like the rest.
Show me the world is not all gloom,
There are budding humans all ready to bloom.
To empathize, support and share a lending ear,
To the endless tsunami of human fear.
Please bring all this gore to an end,
Show us the light around the bend.
Disperse the dark clouds of doubt,
Let the seeds of hope sprout.

It’s so beautiful I want to hug this poetry and you ❤️
Very relevant in these dark times of disease and misery. Much needed.
