Hope, a lifeline

autumn

Courage fading, hope a lifeline.
Battered against the rocks, the waves had no sympathy. A bit dramatic, that’s how I see the painting of life. The storm ragging, a lone figure against nature. The cold biting through the raincoat, lips that couldn’t remember being warm. Along the cliff I walk, defying the mighty force…
I have hope, all is not lost.

Courage sparks, hope a lifeline.
I struggle against the wind and rain. Strength anew inside as hope burns strong.
The storm is outside, hope sparks my courage even while the cold bites through to my bones. I focus on reaching warmth, a light at home burns…
waiting for me, hope alive.

Courage shines, hope a lifeline.
Weary, wanting to lie down and rest. But hope does not give up, it draws on an inner strength, courage emerges. The storms rages on in fury, I take one step at a time. I see a flicker of light, my heart skips a beat. I am saved…
Hope has brought me home.

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
