Battle of Nerves

A LOOK AT LIFE-94
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

BATTLE OF NERVES

When the battle is on
Why a meek surrender
Why not a brave fight
Let us carry ourselves
And those who can not
Let us put our body, mind,
Head and heart together
We will be the victor
Before begins the encounter

Many a war
We have fought with empty hands
And won by power of will and perseverance
Now we have the means and expertise
Why so much of fear?
When we know the enemy on our soil
Is only for days and hours

Let us find the man in us
The coward who panics
Will be no more
Just listen to your reason
Take care of your hands
Never allow them to play
With your nose, eyes and lips
And bring disaster for no reason
Don’t touch your face, eyes and nose
Frequently wash your hands
With a shop or sanitizer
Ensure it before you touch your mouth
When you touch a suspected object
Never forget to wash your hands
Take warm water and lemon, amla etc
That are rich in natural vitamin c
Help your body immunity fight the invader
Remain away from the crowd
Don’t build a gathering
If possible remain in isolation
Social distancing is the best solution
Never leave home
Unless there is an emergency
Listen from time to time to
What the experts say
To those never turn a deaf ear
Who are risking their lives for all of us.
When you feel you are unwell
Maintain distance from others
Remain confined to home isolation
When you cough and sneeze
Put something on your mouth
Help others to remain safe
Never panic
All coughing, sneezing and fever
Are not due to Novel Coronavirus
But we are to take care and comply
And help the management to do the rest
If you have come from abroad
Never fail to register
Never hide your illness
Talk to the doctor
Be with the system
That is fighting against the deadly virus
Help yourself, help your family, nation
And the whole of humanity
Be cautious but never panic
Be a disciplined soldier
Know for sure
The victory will be yours
Have patience
The days of Corona are numbered
It will not be here forever.
