Cries never to be heard

autumn

Are we horrified
should we be horrified and ashamed
there is no doubt now
we have a share in this atrocities

discovery of mass graves
abandoned detention camps
hidden far from sight
location so remote

Wang Kelian in Perlis
500m from the Thai border
a state park protected
with rangers on patrol

How could this go unseen,
war-type detention
guard towers
ringed by barbed wires and wire mesh

harsh existence with steep terrain
most cruel accommodations
confined in cages
are enforcement officers in cahoots?

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
