Poem | Number

When the number shows you the victims,
it’s not like a dark joke of this century
how about the hidden case?

When the number tells you to stay,
missing your normal day
did you realize that you always have a place to come back?

When the number is not only a statistic,
but also a tragedy,
why do I still see the death of humanity?
