‘They call it coronavirus’

Image result for newborn coronavirus
A poem from a perspective of the newborn baby diagnosed with COVID-19 in London

I heard them talk about it,

I don’t understand they say,

the doctors said mummy had it and so did I,

but I didn’t know how to react.

Well, I am put in this special room,

I wish to talk to someone,

I want to know what is happening,

so I cry.

By now, the world must know me,

call me the ‘first newborn with COVID-19’,

and whenever I feel like throwing up,

the doctors will do everything to stop the tears.

Why do I feel like I’m dying,

like I’m dying when I shouldn’t,

but I feel sorry for mummy too,

who deserves to be taken more care of.

I hope someone finds a cure to this soon,

I hope the others get well,

I hope I get well too,

because I don’t want to die…

Pray for this newborn to get well soon! The coronavirus is getting out of our hands…

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
