Before I was afraid of death,
But now I am more afraid of life.

I am not afraid of the virus as much
As I am afraid that I will end up in a hospital,
Waiting for a treatment
That does not come in time...

Because the first time
I have to do the covid test,
Which costs a quarter of the salary,
Even if I already pay half the salary for CASS -
(Social Health Insurance Contribution).

Because for the doctors
Other diseases are "gone" now,
The most important thing for them
is this virus now. 

I started school when there were no restrictions,
And the children could play without wearing
Masks or avoiding other classmates.
Ah! Happy time, wonderful memories.

It's sad that parents have
To lock them up in the house,
Taking online lessons.
If we think also that maybe not all the parents
Can afford to buy them tablets or phones.

Sometimes I think of those who had
A normal funeral with a priest,
They were not thrown in bags
And taken far away from their family.

Before I was afraid of death,
But now I am more afraid of life.
These hard times make me sad,
Making me cry sometimes!
