Pandemic: “I have to do what I’m meant to do Even if that means walking on flames”.

“There is no courage without fear”.

It is impossible to calculate the immense sacrifices made by front line workers and their families in this ongoing pandemic. This post is dedicated to my parents who are both doctors and hence front line workers. I am very proud of their contribution to society given the present circumstances. The frightening way in which this disease has been devouring one life after another, is enough to daunt the most courageous of men . It has been very tough I’m sure for all going through similar situations . I have great respect for such families. They form the backbone of every single warrior. This war would be incomplete without talking about their contributions to it. While they live in constant fear of losing their loved ones, they have to remain strong and staunch for each front line worker to be able to carry on without any hesitation and thoughts of self preservation. “There is no courage without fear”. I salute every single warrior and their families. I pray that this pandemic reaches an end so that we can go back to leading our lives normally and without fear once again.

She watches him diligently everyday
Get up and take his leave
To do his duty and serve others
Who are in dire need
Without hesitation or complaints
He does what he can do best
Without thinking of his comfort or
His life , performing without any rest
Come hail, come storm whatever may come
His response is always the same
“I have to do what I’m meant to do
Even if that means walking on flames”.
She’s his pillar of strength and stability
The backbone of it all
With her beside him, he knows he can
Scale the highest wall
She worries for him, for his well being
While he willingly trudges on
She worries for his mental state and sanity
While he remains staunch and strong
Everyday when he leaves she holds
Tears and a heart filled with emotions back
She refuses to weep for a warrior who stays
While all others run away, on track
She looks to him and he to her
To be faithful to their duties they endeavour
Together they are the ying and yang
That keep everything in balance forever

“There is no courage without fear”.
