Another part of me was revealed during this pandemic
Never knew I could sleep this much
I was not aware I could eat more than three meals per day
Oh I didn’t mention that
I never knew I could watch movies for 12hours straight up without stopping
I never imagined I could even get bored from watching movies (chucks)
The trauma of staying indoor
In this course of indefinite break
I understood more about the principles of not attaching our joy
To ephemeral things, job and also to people
I became addicted to reading books for hours without distraction
My latest attire to take a selfie when bored is incomplete without my nose mask.
Had no idea nose mask could be incorporated into latest styles of 2020
That means belittle no one, anyone can rise in stock like nose mask (smiles)
Hoping we recover from this act of shame
Can we feel honoured again walking head held high
without a nose mask?
Oh, we have not talked about our new lifestyle
Methods of greeting has changed
What a humiliation to our culture
Social gatherings has been deprived
Those getting into debt because of expensive Aso Ebi are really growing fat
cos’ no Aso ebi to buy.
I never knew I could get fat by this time of the year as a student( I never get fat)
There are some positive influence of this break
We received rest from stress
People with cough are stigmatized
One with Fever are seen as corona virus patient
The ignominy experienced during this period takes time to heal
The surviving patient of this virus could not receive
a warm hugs from families and friends
Even with being a survival, there is a pain that comes alongside
Oh what a great distress after fighting for one’s life in the treatment center
Should that be our reward?
Hoping for a survival after this trauma
that has cause us both emotional and psychological injury
I wish I could continue with this lifestyle of staying home
I think Mr corona virus is tired of staying in Nigeria
It is time we bid you goodbye covid-19
And I am sure you did not enjoy your stay in Nigeria
Have a safe trip.
