Conflict! Is it good or bad?
Neither. It’s outcome is.
It is how you handle a conflict,
that will lead to a positive or negative outcome.

We face conflict in our daily lives.
Our own ideas and personalities,
others with their own too.
To differ, but respect the outcome.

Conflict of the heart is painful.
A struggle of keeping my heart safe,
In distress, as love not shared,
How long before the heart trusts again?

Changes occurs in any conflict.
It helps us to grow strong, sometimes.
To look at things differently, mostly.
Learning to overcome indecision in my choices.

I have conflicts with my conscience.
Of what is right or wrong.
The wide ocean of grey area with a thin fine line.
A pull from both sides, how do I deal?

My emotions in conflict, how do I deal?
Running away from reality, not an option.
Is the imagination an escape to freedom,
Or is reality the prison I am locked in?

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
