Life Before Covid Outbreak.

Life Before Covid Outbreak.

A Poem by Simoni Khanna Chilupuri

As the title says, this poem is directed towards how things changed in a flash of moments.

Nature takes it's revenge,
I heard it somewhere in
my teenage.
Never knew I'd have
witnessed this coming
so soon.
Everything was calm
and settling until this
disastrous day of
pandemic outbreak.

Some were trying to
cope up with their busy
lives whereas some others
were trying to find
employment so as to meet
their daily needs. And here I
was, not knowing the purpose
of my life, finding it difficult
to wake up early and get
ready for school.

I saw a pretty much easy
going lifestyle and carefree
people back then.
I saw people on streets
with no masks on, enjoying
their lives going to parties
and inviting people home.
Now, I see people with
fright wanting to be safe
and alive.
I, also see people craving
to step out of house, and
fly high like a bird as if the
world is come to an end.

It's strange how situations
get a hold of people's lives.
The one who abhorred going
to school is the exact same
person wanting to explore
new things.
The one who's been a
procrastinator all his life
Is the only one wanting
to get things done to
his earliest.

I see my pop working
day and night for a
living, regardless of this
pathetic outbreak and
here I see myself doing
nothing but to weigh my
head down and think what
I'd do to pass all day.
