Dec 3: The hope for peace few and far between

Light a candle for peace.


“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
– Albert Einstein

The Lord will give strength to his people; The Lord blesses his people with peace. – Psalm 29:11

War-torn faces a pitiful sight.
We spot them by their eyes.
A reflection of horror in them.
They know not what peace is.

How common such scenes have become.
Posted on different media platforms.
Morbid news played up every time.
The hope for peace few and far between.

Please continue to share with friends,
for the World needs our prayers.
Peace be with you. Amen.

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
