Right from wrong

autumn

When did it get hard,
to see right from wrong?
The grey area no more
a black hole getting bigger.

Those in power flaunting
We see justice getting lost
A wrong twisted into a right
what will our children learn?

With wealth, power follows
Abuse happens, corruption easy
Integrity compromised
the conscience destroyed.

Daily in the newspaper
Right from wrong covered up
With forked tongues
a lie becomes the truth.

Stop! Prevent! Fight!
Slogans of moral.
Do right from wrong
the soul in danger.

A strong backbone
A spine straight, upright
To do the right thing
even when you stand alone.

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
