Count your blessings

autumn

Worry and stress seen daily.
Reflected in the faces around me.
Lifestyle changes drastically.
Is a declining economy to blame?

What will February bring?
The memo is out, no hiring.
Is retrenchment in the cards?
Don’t predict, count your blessings.

You focus on gripe and grumbling.
You forget to be thankful.
Try a smile, you have a job.
However bleak, count your blessings.

Weariness weighs heavy.
What if you join the un-hired?
You cannot control the future.
You ate today, count your blessings.

I have been through a shutdown.
Months of an uncertain future.
Savings dwindling, each day a test.
I endured, I count my blessings.

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
