Probe / Poem by Sehma Helaa

Poem by Sehma Helaa



In the twinkling of an eye
God gets back his universe
A grim silence engulfed the earth and the sky
People knelt inside houses
Begging God to end this curse

How tiny people are!
caged like laboratory rats
They could go nowhere
Corona is lurking
Strolling in empty streets
seeming fear in anxious hearts

corona is rigorously smirking
A tiny virus
startled every human being
It is not a matter of size and number
A glorious lesson of God ‘s power
we are impelled to remember

Today we are on the battlefield
Living under the gunpoint
From now on we have to understand
No one may be spared the shot

May we sprout evil and greed
what is happening is a clear lesson
A new start of clemency we need
Instead of black wishes, we opt for crimson
