The colour yellow


A rally of solidarity was held.
For two days the people were united.
To rally for clean elections, clean government.
A unity forged for love of country.

Banned by the police, yet they marched.
Called an illegal gathering, they held firm.
Legal action can be taken against them.
A sea of yellow t-shirts marching told the story.

The people are standing up today.
Voicing out against the one elected.
The people have reached their limit.
They cannot turn away from the truth.

Tomorrow the people celebrate National Day.
It is somewhat muted because of the rally.
This rally only voices out the people’s concerns.
In hope their government listen to the rumblings.

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
