We want to thank our graduate for sharing 2 of his poems that he recently wrote. He wrote a poem titled- “Happy Hopeful Easter” and another titled- “Lifeline Support Services”. You can read both of his poems below:
Happy Hopeful Easter
May Hope spring bright
Have faith and see the light
Though God has given a sign
And Nature brought us all in line
Righting the wrongs done
But now it’s no more fun
As the world’s in lockdown
Going out even to town
Risks getting infected for real
It’s Mother Earth’s rehearsal
Man must change his ways
Celebrate with all creatures
Big and small- strong and weak
For God’s love and forgiveness seek
Spend some time in self-reflection
Staying home for us and our nation
May this be a special Easter for all
Be safe to reduce the death toll!
Lifeline Support Services
They have been called
Our frontline officers
In the fight against C19
Really that is not to mean
Immunity from the virus
Being so brave and bold!
We are all been told
To keep the distance
Lest being put into quarantine.
Our medical services are seen
As frontline support officers
That’s what we have been told
In reality they are not meant to fold
In case C19 gets even more serious
Then let’s call them our backline
Be frontline to fight on rain or shine
Following the Law and routines
To rid the virus from the world!
Medical services- precious as gold-
Give a glimmer of hope to us
To always make sure we are fine
To give us hope to be on cloud nine
So life can carry on as usual always
Free from C19’s grip and hold!
Written in appreciation of our medical staff and services- and for all who are homebound during this pandemic crisis! C19’s not a joke!
