Poem by: AbdulQadir Olanrewaju

1.
Sadness engulfs and seizes countless hearts
As hullabaloo persists and fills the world
Mortality keeps counting high
Humankind disturbed and questioning for a cure
In the wake of a world ablaze with covid-19

2.
The world is ruining, humanity now fading
Hunger strikes, poverty afflicts
Welfare interchanged for warfare
We now suffer and regret
For the peace we’ve turned in pieces

3.
What led to this, we ponder not
What could prevent this, we never care for
Self-centered we are, unity we’ve let down
Cause we only want to take the lead
And never hearken to others plea

4.
Hey! To rid the world of this mess
And make a future that’s very fair
Spend much on alms and say no to arms
Set to bring back safety and humanity in our midst
Show love to all and hatred to none

5.
To make a safe world
Full of cheers and glad tidings
Where love and care make the watchword
And mankind act with kindness
Cling to the teachings of Islam
Stay safe, save lives
