It's been a year, time flies fast Immersed in the flow of the clock How to stop? How to think? Was lost in a timeless mind block! The world was limping, injured and lost livelihood the only aim, the wound became a scar. Dangers luring as I travel Unknown to sorrows that lay afar! And then when all seemed in the past a sudden wave of desperation crashes, Wailing noises every minute Rising counts of bodies, bones and ashes! Closer it crept, day after day solitude draped the cruel design, faster then the season changed the nation fell down once again. Back within my four white walls This time temperatures rose, fearing for the worst at times Swabs done and the wait began. The dreaded fear hit too soon 'Positive' was a horrible word! sleep was stolen, and my future too! The frightened silence of the bird! Family, friends, and all I knew What if? What will? and to what degree? The cards that were so close to me were on the floor for all to see! The clock still ticking, moving seconds. Struggles worsen day by day, Every moment passed in fear The Window shows the world in play! Soon strength was back And here I was I know now how close we are all those noises and counts suddenly matter more than ever., near or far!!!
