A Poem by sette

A game

Of survival and chance

This is one lesson

Every man should learn,

The virus called CORONA

Is just an instrument,

Telling us to care,

To share our blessings.

Back to the basics,

That material things

Are just secondary,

Amidst the technology,

We stand as one.

Keep the faith,

There is a reason

For everything;

Perhaps a warning

That nothing beats

The power of God

To heal us,

Learn to care

It is the only hope left.

I agree my dear friend.
"The power of God
To heal us,
Learn to care
It is the only hope left."
Our countries need to lead with concern, kindness and help the countries in need. Hello my friend.

as much as this virus is keeping us all apart, I do believe, as your poem expresses, that it is reminding us that we haven't been together enough, even before this occurred...
strong voice here, sette.

It sure has woken the world, and that's probably not a bad thing.
In the long run, man will still blow his chances of survival through total greed.

The virus has made us re-evaluate our lives and adjust to a novel set of circumstances, so hopefully we can learn from this experience and be more caring and compassionate in the future. Not sure what God has to do with it, though.

So much wisdom in these words settle at this time. The virus has made us question everything and all our values. A wakeup call indeed. All the best.

This is the best thing I've read about seeing the good in these trying times. So many people write about the doom & gloom side of it, but we can always find hope if we set our minds to it, which is what you've done here & it encourages others to do the same. I have noticed lots of people following your message, as if these times have become so harsh, to be kind is like a backlash to the background noise of greed at any cost. I feel the USA isn't doing this very well, whereas there are many other countries that have come together for the greater good & bringing the covid levels down to amazing lows. We could do that in the USA if people cared, like your poem suggests, but many people only care about themselves here & that's the rub. Love your message. Wish this could sprout wings & take off big time in more people's hearts (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Sette - what you say is so true. We must keep our faith and do our best to watch out for ourselves and the ones we love. You do the same as you preach.
Take especial care - Dave
