I envy


I envy for I lack.
Words so hard to form.
But covet I do not.
Words of another easily formed.

Each day a new input.
Not flawed but superb.
Such talent flow out.
I read, I admire.

Blogs that update daily.
Awesome masterpieces or not.
Words penned with emotions.
Diligently by committed writers.

I envy for I lack.
A mind slow to connect.
But covet I do not.
The mind that’s fast to connect.

My soul speaks fast.
Words tumble out, jumbled.
But the muse in me cries.
As I struggle with words.

Words like a jigsaw puzzle.
Tediously connecting each.
Sentences formed, rewritten.
When finished, moderate.

I envy for I lack.
No patterns of rhyme.
But covet I do not.
Of rhymes that distinguish poetry.

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
