After the retreat


Covid-19 has taken a lot from many,
Killed people, destroyed families,
But here’s to them who needed this,
To them, this was a blissful retreat. 

I know life has been harsh on you,
The hustle and bustle wearing you,
Stuck on a job that you hate,
For you, lock down was a gift. 

Maybe you picked your guitar,
Or made some beautiful art,
You reconnected with yourself,
You fear losing yourself again. 

It doesn’t have to be this way,
Take out a few minutes a day,
Stay connected to the thing you love,
To the beauty of life, please hold on. 

To those who resorted to blogs,
Thank you for your amazing words.
With a heart full of love,
I will be waiting for your posts. 

Dedicated to all of you who dread going back to work.

  3. That’s quite a thing isn’t it? I mean what’s devastating for one could proove life changing for the other. Not trying to be an old wisdom guy but I guess this thing in itself is a very big lesson to learn. And maybe from next time ,we could also, before making any decision or such , also think about the impact it might bring on others, rather than just selfishly thinking if our own interests. And yeah, some dread for the lockdown to end, me being one of them 😅, but yet again, I could still carry out blogging in between my studies. ( I hope I can 🙄).
    So, yeah nice topic, nicely written, just had a nice time reading this poem and realising the thoughts it carried. Cheers 🤟

    1. That’s nice to hear. How’s working from home going on? Also, how’s nitro? I’m sure he must be thrilled that you’re home. 😬

      1. He’s doing really well. As cute as ever. Working from home is challenging but I’m doing it. I rather go to the office and socialise with others but it is what it is I don’t really have a choice 💞

  6. Beautifully penned…… We had such a long break to start something new or to learn which we were longing to do….but there were also some people going out for essential service… Where we are enjoying… Finding ourselves they were endangering their lives for work…. Like my father and sister and many other……….

    1. True… It’s really amazing how people are on duty in this situation to keep us all safe… While we enjoy our ‘family time’ and ‘me time’… We should take some moments to thank them and pray for them. ❣️❣️❤️❤️❤️
