Peace is incarcerated in this facial expression of this picture I’ve drawn of a woman who’s face has been washed in these rains or tears of people who’ve lost their loved ones from this coroner pandemic that stirs up the fear of their hearts.

She knows that all things work together for good to those who love God. As she cries, she sees right through the raindrops of a cold rainy season she once walked through and tears of a painful struggle of the widows and orphans who strive through coroner virus times as  they live in this new normal.

With the suffering as evident as the scares in her back, she says in her mind, that God allows new suffering on the people he loves to make them stronger and to be able to possess new things as they are destined to be greater than their previous lives because once they go through this pain, their blood turns gold.

Lyrically she expresses these words, more gold in human minds than has ever been mined on earth and it takes the struggle to manifest that treasure into a reality.

The pain it takes to get what’s best for you is what matters, new ideas, better development and true wisdom is like a house whose foundation is a build-up of rocks and so this coroner will restart the beginning with a  stronger foundation of unity from the spirit to the body

What we base our beliefs in and what we put ourselves through is what determines the glory and favour of the future or the curse of it. Tears of joy fall from her eyes as she sees the end from the beginning which gives her insight of the beauty of pain
