Mask of Sorrow
written by: Annalyn Neo Celeste
2020 came with an attitude
Can you feel its magnitude?
Far & wide, longitude, latitude
I guess we are all screwed
Misconception, downplayed, confusion
World at large in suspicion
An invisible invasion, contagion
Oblivious contamination, transmission
Survival of the fittest, I deter!
Hoarding toilet paper, reveals character
Punching a fellow, a vacuous wrestler
Alike sentiment to dense antivaxxer!
Quarantine, solitude, trial of mentality
Resilience at its best circumvent insanity
Violating orders – thought of virus fugacity
Selfish intentions! A test to humanity
Crippled global industry, Economy’s declining
A catalyst, Recession, Depression arising
Divine universe discern our suffering
Affluent to impecunious – people are dying!
Sense the world swiftly shattering
Silent scream, havoc, vastly stifling
Yet strengthening faith an undertaking
While antidote is still brewing
Shall benevolence, peace unveil in thorough
Solidarity towards fresh tomorrow
Behind, evade such plague’s shadow
Anon! We’ll take off this Mask of Sorrow!
