Lockdown! by Sahithi Maduri

Life was too busy in struggle for existence

Pandemic came as a pack of fears and stress

For some it changed life;

For some it made life.

Lifestyle has changed for a reason

Life skills were learnt in a season

COVID is a call to the entire world

Social distance and uncertain situation

Raised the curtain for Hi-fi world to Wi-Fi

To watch internal connect and work on internet

Sorrow left and surroundings alerted

To look within and to look around

Conscious effort to develop a passion

// This poem has been penned by 15-year-old Sahithi Maduri and was recited by her at the Children’s Poetry Open Mic on Mental Health organized by WICCI National Mental Health Council in association with Beyond the Box on 18th September 2021 //
