There is Hope

By: Sebenzile Ngwenya

We were once a happy nation,

Beaming with excitement,

Our faces chiselled with permanent smiles,

Healthy and optimistic about the future

 

Then we got sick and worried,

Smiles suddenly turned into frowns,

All optimism was now worry,

And nightmares were reality

 

We must find solace through quarantine

As we strive to get better,

What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,

And that will give us hope

 

We were not meant to suffer but be joyous,

Let’s take precaution and good care,

So, I’m confident we’ll win this battle,

A happy nation we’ll return to be
