A micro-poem that speaks to the potential positive outcomes of the current COVID-19 situation.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

the power of the pandemic:

to surface the subconscious

to burn all battlefields

to embolden hearts

to reveal false idols

to abolish oppression

to collapse systems of inequity

to empower the people

to inspire sustainable innovations

to sober up the egotists

to incite rightful action

to level the playing field

to unseal unspoken oaths

to shed light on dark corners of deception

to cease the degradation

to course-correct our value exchange

to catalyze compassion

to shatter illusions of separateness

to shrive away nonessentials

to renounce the seduction of fame

to unearth holy ground

to transfigure grief

to birth a new humanity

to create heaven on earth

the above world is on its way

 open your eyes

look for the good
