True Colors

by Evelyn Hall

Our lives have changed because of Covid,
Some for the good, others for the worse.
Why does it take a tragedy like this,
For ones to come together in unity and peace?

We have been asked to wear masks, social distance,
And to be more diligent in our personal hygiene.
Is that too much for us to do, in order to protect,
Our families, friends and neighbors?

Some of us make changes for, a day, a week and even months,
But go back to our true colors; of being unkind, not caring, unloving.
Are we part of the problem, or the solution?
Let’s look into our minds and hearts, take a self examination.

Death is our, Enemy. We can save lives. How?
By being obedient, following guidelines from the authorities.
Do to others, what we want others to do to us.
Do it while there is still time. Do it...Now.

Evelyn Hall, poet extraordinaire... .
by: Anonymous

Evelyn Hall is a poet of deep, penetrating insight. A pugilist writer of the inverse war of love and harmony against man's instinct to lash out at injustice and myopia.
