THE SOLDIERS IN THIS WAR

A battle needs soldiers
…soldiers to stand
…to understand its tactics through the antics of its opponents
…and fight for its win
Corona is a battlefield
…one whose soldiers hold no arms to kill
…but arms of will with quills to heal

II
Hospitals are now battlefields
Doctors and nurses
…and janitors as soldiers
Fighting the ruthless viruses
From claps to ovations
…they deserve them all
For they are soldiers of health risking infections and deaths
…to save those they can

III
For knowing the risks
…and working through them
For loving your lives
…and still battling for others
Ayekoo
…you saviours of our ailing planet
May God protect you
…even as some detest you in apt relativity
May the world reward you
…even as some lord over you in annoying self righteousness
May you know fulfillment
…even through the dangers of death
You’re all knights and knightesses
…wrestling for bodies to live with their souls and spirits
A deed none can beat in these times
…Noble is an under description of your kind

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
