I am here

Far from home

I want to go back but

There are lot of restrictions

The flights are suspended, borders closed

Daily I check for flight schedules to see if I can

Get booking to fly to my home country

But I am disappointed every day

But I am still hopeful

I will get there soon!


When the pandemic broke, a lot of people who were out of the country for work, business, or vacation were stuck in foreign countries. This poem is a reflection of their state of mind

  1. The most frightful are the cases were husband works in some other country, wife passed away with Covid and the child is staying with whoever takes care of them. In some cases, the child has not been told the truth about the mother. Heart-rending stories, but I guess people are getting immune to tragedy in view of the scale at which it is happening.
