Enter Corona

.. by Grant Lock

We were gods

Masters of our world

Now humanity

Lies unfurled

plans trashed

mashed like the potato

a separate saucepan for me

a separate saucepan for you


this loneliness

is a taste of hell

We were kings

Masters of creation

Internet, technology, , DNA


Now tiny things


the nakedness of humanity

What, and where are our clothes

What and where is sanity

We were gods

We were kings

flew anywhere.

?We had wings.

Now confined to the earth

?from whence we came

Who am I?

Adam is my name

And if heaven is a place

?Without dead ends

?this isolation


Then I reach out

to the creator of Adam

And say,

God, be my friend

  1. A concise analyses of the current situation and helplessness of humanity. Despite all the wealth, scientific and technological progress by humanity, we cannot do anything against this new threat to mankind. An earthquake, war, and even nuclear war can impact part of the world; but the Corona has engulfed the entire globe and we are like frightened sparrows. No medicine and less hope. Only God can save us if we seek His help and mercy through our prayers and supplications.

  2. I don’t know who wrote this, but it’s beautiful..

    We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.
    Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
    Paris is no longer romantic,
    New York doesn’t stand up anymore,
    the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.
    Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
    Suddenly you realise that power, beauty & money are worthless, and can’t get you the oxygen you’re fighting for.
    The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message:
    “You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.”

  3. It is sad that mankind only asks for help from his Creator when all other avenues that his ego has created have been exhausted, whereas it should be the first port of call. The mortally ‘conditioned’ mind is not capable of seeing beyond it’s self-created cave until it is forced to by circumstances. The restoration of the state called “Man” [original Hebrew for male AND female – not two separate entities] is inevitable and harmony will mark the event. Great humility soonest grasps this.
    ?First: The baptism of repentance is indeed a stricken state of human consciousness, wherein mortals gain severe views of themselves; a state of mind which rends the veil that hides mental deformity. Tears flood the eyes, agony struggles, pride rebels, and a mortal seems a monster, a dark, impenetrable cloud of error; and falling on the bended knee of prayer, humble before God, he cries, ?Save, or I perish.? Thus Truth, searching the heart, neutralizes and destroys error.
    This mental period is sometimes chronic, but oftener acute. It is attended throughout with doubt, hope, sorrow, joy, defeat, and triumph. When the good fight is fought, error yields up its weapons and kisses the feet of Love, while white-winged peace sings to the heart a song of angels.
    Second: The baptism of the Holy Ghost is the spirit of Truth cleansing from all sin [the mortal belief system]; giving mortals new motives, new purposes, new affections, all pointing up?ward. This mental condition settles into strength, freedom, deep-toned faith in God; and a marked loss of faith in evil, in human wisdom, human policy, ways, and means. It develops individual capacity, increases the intellectual activities, and so quickens moral sensibility that the great demands of spiritual sense are recognized, and they rebuke the material senses, holding sway over human consciousness.
    By purifying human thought, this state of mind permeates with increased harmony all the minuti? of human affairs. It brings with it wonderful foresight, wisdom, and power; it unselfs the mortal purpose, gives steadiness to resolve, and success to endeavor.? Miscellaneous Writings – Eddy

  4. Both Grant Lock’s poem and Fardad Ali Shah’s text are stunning.

    Not sure I have read anything so beautiful as both of these writings for a long time. And I haven’t heard anything so beautiful either… Not since I listened to “Ex-Oceano”, Matthew Dewey’s symphony n? 2, performed by Czech National Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Jun Kucera
