We never thought we would experience it
An unknown world that has opened its doors
Here we are figuring how to fit
In to these not so friendly floors.
Restricted access to everything around
Ceasing the movements we make
Open skies and empty roads now surround
Helplessly we admire this flake.
Normalcy has a new meaning now
Not sure how long it will persist
Face masks and gloves are the new know-how
Sanitisers are wholly insist.
Children have nowhere to go,
No school or playground or park
Life seems to have become slow
We’re no more living in the dark.
No one had even a slight notion
Of what this pandemic could even be
Yet everyone is in sync and motion
Helping one another to survive thee.
Personally, its an experience of a life time
It has taught us to be more cautious and kind
Bringing us closer in a similar chime
We have learned to respect each others bind.
