I am blank….

I am blank….

Nothingness enveloped everything

Thoughts vanished without a trace

Calmness never felt so unsettling

Emptiness occupied the mind

I am numb….

Grief diffused into the air

Stationed destinies refuse to change

Confined life clogging to live

Clasped hope kneeled down in fear


I am a seed…

Buried deep down in the gloom

Waiting in the endless wait

A drop of water, warmth and the sun

Certainly will shoot up again!

I in the times of this pandemic’s overdose
