What are you afraid of?

autumn

What are you afraid of?
Trying and failing,
or making excuses and never knowing
if you could have succeeded.

What are you afraid of?
Living your crazy dreams in the now,
or letting it remain in
the dream scape realm,
never daring to dream.

What are you afraid of?
Standing up for what you believe,
and voicing out your opinion,
or keeping quiet and
letting others trample over you.

What are you afraid of?
Everything sometimes.
Living most of the time.
Dying all the time.
Fear a constant companion.

What are you afraid of?
Losing God for lack of faith,
or compromising your faith for another.
For without God you won’t exist.

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
