If there is another thing, most paramount that Covid-19 pandemic has brought to full glee, it is the fact that human life is worth nothing and humanity could diminish with a snap of the finger.
We have also been faced with the fact that death is no discriminator—once it knocks on your door, you would have no other option than to open.
Covid-19 has reduced and equally humbled us all— for once, we are all ordinary people with no class, celebrity status, wealth or any other thing serving us a barrier between us.
For once, all of us can accept that we are all humans and each one of us is at a risk and could die and that is what exactly what singer Simi is resonating.
Simi says all of a sudden, even our favorite celebs are as ordinary as we and showbiz is no longer something looking forward to because our lives are hanging on the merest thread.
She wrote; “Even your superstars seem more ordinary now. Lol. Showbiz is less showy when tomorrow is standing on a cliff. This should humble the fuck out of everyone.
“This is likely not the end of the world; but for those of us here to witness it, it should be the beginning of a reset of perspective, essence, mindset. Cos las las we ain’t shit. We’re just here to be the most that we can be while the universe allows it.”
“One second you have all these grand plans; the next, life is running circles around you. I feel like life is telling all of humanity, collectively “you ain’t shit.” Everybody’s priority is different now. Your goals are diff now. The point of life has shifted now. Fascinating!
“When we get on the other side of this thing, I wonder if we will have learned anything. Cos people forget.”
