Flight MH370


Your last message,
“All right, good night.”
Your blip on the radar,
Vanished without a trace.

Nations praying, helping,
Ships and aircrafts sent out,
South China Sea, Indian Ocean,
Northern and Southern corridors too.

Shrouded in mystery,
Hijacked, terrorism?
An explosion, electronic malfunction?

Investigations on-going,
More questions asked,
No answers, hope in our hearts,
Search continues, families praying.

Each day some new sightings,
Debris found, floating.
Aircrafts deployed,
We wait, holding on to hope.

But on day 17, confirmation came,
Lost in the Indian Ocean.
Closure for your loved ones,
Flight MH370 – rest in peace.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
