This moment in time, not experienced before
Has made us inspect, inspire and explore,
To ensure that our movements are justified and true,
Considering responsibility in everything we do.
We inspect what were doing in finest detail
To see if it’s essential and what it entails.
We consider how our actions impact
Our need for action is (hopefully) based on fact.
We have to consider the old and the young,
The teens and the babies that are still in mums tum,
We have to remember that each action we take
Could if wrongly managed, be a huge mistake.
We try to inspire those that care for us too,
We clap and sing; who’s inspired you?
We want to know that when life returns
We have been responsible participants in all concerns.
We seek and explore new ways now of living
Of different ways to be kind and forgiving.
Those people we once blindly dismissed
We've now had to acknowledge, they still exist.
It was easy to pretend when we had busy lives
That the people that shunned us and had out their knives
Were not worth the thought of forgiving, but then again,
Now in this quiet time, our thoughts turn to them.
So when we are through with Covid-19,
Our earth renewed, the air fresh and clean,
We’ll remember with sadness, huge numbers that died,
How indiscriminate the virus was, can’t be denied.
Let's start afresh with new insight on life
And practice new ways to share with delight
The closeness we felt when we rejoined those we love
With kisses and laughter, a tear and a hug.
When this is done, there still will be
Those isolated and victimised, indiscriminately,
So let’s open our hearts like we did at this time
And continue the lessons we’ve learnt, and be kind.
