Poem: Covid-19

May escape you or me—so it seems:

Wear your mask.

Wash your hands.

Stand 6 feet away.

Help stop the spread.

“Take the vaccine!”

To keep us safe—alive;

I beg u—please.

Still many has died; gasping for air,

some say its airborne–some say:

“You can catch it standing near!”

Without a warning, many took,

their last breath and that’s even scary,

“That is so mean!”

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
