I feel Pain, not for me but for society, I cannot recall ever feeling this before,
until hearing about recollections so raw.
I did not feel this bruised when I heard the news,
I cannot precedent if it will last or if it is just a phase.
Will I ever escape this emotional maze?
I did not realise it was hurting peoples’ homes, health, work and wellbeing,
and all this time I was not listening nor seeing.
I felt so interested in my own issues which seem less salient now.
I can no longer be this self-interested and spoilt cow.
I cannot minimise this misery and push aside this pain,
as even if I do not worry, everyone’s suffering will remain.
They will still suffer because of this wretched Virus.
From this week, I learnt that maybe I should listen more and judge less.
At least at this point in time, I would be joyful if everyone is hail and healthy,
whatever they are doing and whether they are poor or wealthy.
Hence, I wish even clubs would open for other people’s profit not mine.
even if I have different interests from others, I realised that it is fine.
Even though I am not fond of boat bacchanals, orgies and flings,
I now recognise what raves bring that people are desperately missing:
Energy, elation and exhilaration!
