The World is Waiting

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic
people are dying every day
and hope seems so far away

We’re told to wash our hands and sanitize
social distance and quarantine
but people are getting infected every day

The world has never felt this small
there’s so much uncertainty in the air
and our prayers are not being answered right away

So we’re waiting
waiting for covid to go away
or for a solution to come our way
