Simple as that – Be Nice


Colours and shapes define our world.
A beauty beyond expression,
Can you hear your soul whisper,
a thank you to the Creator.

Mankind too is defined by colours and shapes.
It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white.
Straight, bisexual or gay, lesbian,
I shouldn’t be judgemental,

Are friends only the rich, never the poor?
Eyes searching the tall and skinny,
or handsome and beautiful,
does being short and fat bring embarrassment?

We need to change on the inside.
Change starts with me first.
Be nice. Be nice. Be nice.
It’s as simple as that.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. 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

    1. Hi John. Wow. Thank you for reblogging my poem. But most of all I am humble by your lovely compliment. It’s the first time someone has called me a talented writer. Most days I don’t feel talented. I salute you. Regards, Carol
