A Kid in a Pandemic

A Frolicking Spirit
Overflowing with curiosity
Is amazed to see
Our languished faces, constantly

Why are you So sore,
Why are You so worried?
Look at my enchanting eyes
Look at my baby steps

My toddling courage
Is simmering with hope
As I see the world
Full of relentless possibilities

Impossible’ is just a word
I am beginning to mould
I am your hero
I am you reason

‘cause my giggling joy
Is a magical charm
Extinguishing you miseries
When I flaunt my tiny arms

A World in a Room

Quarantined in a room
With many smiling friends
Bob asks me to sit,
“Forget your worries, kid

Simon loves to spin
Blowing air with a grin
He loves to keep me cold
A brother whose story untold

There’s a Mattress
In the room
Who loves to make me sleep
A mother’s lap to see dreams


A world full of souls
A book-shelf full of stories
Friends like Bob the chair
Selfless Simon, the fan who dares.

Loneliness is just a myth
For me, it’s all about grit
There’s a life in every corner
There’s a world inside a room

Angels are Working

Far from their families
For the sake of humanity
Angels are working
To keep the hopes alive

Hiding their bruises
Itching their burns
They are walking on embers
To keep the hopes alive

Gods among us
The sages of humanity
Sacrificing their lives
On the alter of humanity

Their stories will be told
Their tale of sacrifice
Forever they will be remembered
As Angels of humankind

(These Angels are Doctors, Health workers, officials and Bankers)
