The List


Some call it a bucket list
others call it a checklist
there’s those who have a wish list
mine’s simply the list

I keep it close to my heart
nothing written on paper
stored away in my mind
ever-changing, ever-growing

minor achievements, awesome dares
bridges crossed, roads travelled
problems encountered, integrity tested,
a few regrets, some disappointments.

many things checked off
new ones added on
failed in some, triumphed in others
this list, my treasure map

Have I done what I set to do?
So many places to go
Crazy dreams to live
touching reality, transforming dreams.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. 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
