The gift of humanity

Alone, abandoned and adrift
in the tsunami of turbulent times
we learnt the hard way to stay afloat
we also learnt to look out for each other.

Each day a commoner lent a hand
each day brought stories of humanitarianism
each day many a precious lives were lost
each day some small victories were won too!

The powers to be never tried to make us feel safe
so we learnt to be brave to survive
the best gift that we gave to each other;
we not only held hands, despite the distance, but also beat most odds!

  1. So so true. Such an empowering poem, Punam! If we stand together, we can get through so much. And this pandemic has really shone a light of so many stories of random acts of kindness.

  2. “we not only held hands, despite the distance, but also beat most odds!” this is so true and beautiful Punam. I love at how you remind us of the power we all have when we joined hands together – we beat most odds

  3. “Each day a commoner lent a hand
    each day brought stories of humanitarianism” the moment we became self absorbed and ignore the need of humanity, the universe and the nature pushed us to a situation of “tsunami of turbulent times” . Humanity is lost within the the souls of our hearts, we need to revive it in order to survive. We at wordskraft share similar sentiments like your. We, in fact have a great article on the topic where we talk about humanity and a project called project Sunshine. We would if you could read that at our site and let us know your thoughts.
