The Pandemic Which Was

Written By Arwa Rampurwala (Grade 8)

A pandemic the virus was,
Socialising was one of its greatest cause.

At first, they made it a joke,
But soon the entire country woke.

The disease started spreading like wildfire,
And there was a lockdown which curbs our desires.

People started dying,
And mothers started crying.

Rumours started to spread,
Messing with our heads.

People began to panic,
They began to fear this toxic.

The poor starved as they had nothing to eat,
And businesses had to take a beat.

Such was the impact of COVID-19,
If only had we practised social distancing!

My Safe Space

As I feel the warmth of the sun fall on my face,
I open my eyes, and squint through the bright rays.
Gazing ahead at the beach...

Silent Past

In shadows of the past, I feel so lost,
Was once a happy kid, now all tossed.
Circumstances cruel, changed my way...

A life without tension & worry, A life where there is no need to hurry, A life where you can have all...
