The Silent Plague
For years, MAN has suffered through many plagues.
Each year they try to find a vaccine to cure their sickness.
Now the world has been plagued with a virus that they can barely find a cure for.
Some walk in fear that they will be next.
Some walk with their heads up and chests out believing they are untouchable by it.
Some have even survived it.
But, the Wicked Bug that roams the lands is evolving and taking lives before they know they even have it.
It goes by different names by the people and takes on different forms through the microscopic eyes.
Its only a matter of time before it evolves again the next year, and the next.
What if the wicked bug finally out smarts the people and plagues their vessels and leave behind no trace.
The moment they close their eyes to rest, they won't wake up because it had all ready claimed their life before they showed any symptoms.
Some people will wake up next to their loved ones past away.
But did they not look healthy before they closed their eyes?
Were they not enjoying their lives before going to bed?
2020 was a year that mankind finally saw their world is dying and their potions and remedies are barely working, or they cannot find one fast enough.
Will 2021 be the year the Wicked Bug takes lives quietly?
If that time ever comes, the people should be afraid to lay down and go to sleep.
It could be their last day and they would never know.
So what medicine will save them this time?
Who will have the great healing to banish the Wicked Bug from devouring lives?
What name shall the tongues of the people yelp when they are afraid?
Will it be the name that is mouthed when they are enjoying their pleasurable moments?
Will it be the name that is spoken in vain when they conversate?
Or will it be the name that pain brings to the tip of their tongue?
What is that name?
It's spoken blasphemy in the voices of the people.
What will become of humans and their paradise?
Well, it's just a story...
So let them continue their lives, but the fear that roams will continue to torment their hearts.
But one day, those who are blind will see if 2020 wasn't enough vision of the world.
