Reopening The Doors
What will happen
on the 4th of May?
When everyone leaves their homes
and return to their workplaces?
Will they continue practicing social distancing where possible
and take care of their hygiene?
Or will they act like COVID 19 never existed?
Will the virus spread rapidly
and reach its peak?
Will a cure be found soon?
Or is this déjà vu?
The return of the Spanish flu?
Is this how the story ends?
Or the start of a new chapter?
Author’s Notes: Today’s prompt was too confusing and overwhelming to me, so I just wrote a random poem about my fears and concerns regarding the Coronavirus and the end of the lockdown here in South Africa.
