Inspired by one of our events in partnership with Manchester Libraries, Farheen wrote this poem about Corona Virus and it’s impact.
Why there is a corona
Everywhere its corona
There is nowhere to go, nowhere to hide from corona
We are living in a fear from coronavirus
We lay on bed, sit on a coach watch out the window
The roads are empty, we watch the sky but there is no bird to see
Watching to the news of thousands of people dying
hoping this will end but there is no guarantee
These eyes are sad, we are tired, there is no one to see
We are afraid to visit families
There are things that I want to share,
which remained hidden inside this heart
My question is to the world what is corona?
Is this a disease or is it a business?
Oh, people ask yourself why there is a corona?
When quarantine started, the food is unaffordable, the masks are expensive
Prices of goods been increased
The medicine is lost
The question is what is corona?
It is the result of this black-market, disloyalty, disrespecting others, lying and taking human rights is a corona
Ask yourself why there is a corona
People have forgotten in this world you remain for a while,
but then you must also leave
Oh, people Corona is the punishment of your deeds
everything here must remain behind
Coronavirus is not a chance to earn
every human life’s matter
corona is the result of your greed
The USA must know there is no super power but there is one and only and that is GOD
India must also know, you made Kashmir suffer and go through extensive violence over decades, hope you realise their pain and free Kashmir
Hope this world recovers soon from this catastrophe
May this corona awake the sleeping souls
Hope people would learn how to be kind to one another and fairer, more sustainable
more progressive, more honest and give equal rights to all human beings,
there is no rich, no poor, no black no white, no brown, no Asian, no tall no short
together is the strongest to overcome any obstacles any virus any pain
The greatest religion of them all is to unite and be kind
This world is a home for us all
Let’s save this world don’t break it
