Year 2020

The year of the 2020
The hardest we ever had
The mask and the virus that
Put people to an end

So many of us suffered
And so many had died!
It happened to sister, brothers
It happened to uncles and aunts.
Neighbors and many more!
It is still happening but we
Have to stay strong!

Looking back was a hard year
but we look forward with hope!
We need to be strong and fight for worst!

The future is ours!
Our confidence needs to be rebuilt,
We go forward and stay strong!
To offer our children a better tomorrow!
