The question on my mind

autumn

Part of me wants to retire.
Emotions of the heart.
The mind stops me.
The need to work.

A conflict faced.
To weigh my options.
Retirement benefits.
Against lack of it.

Have I saved enough?
To live in comfort.
Is there enough medical?
If my health fails.

I have worked hard.
Is now the time to relax?
To opt for retirement.
To reap from my hard labour.

The question on my mind;
Is today the day to retire?
I cannot seem to decide.
My heart and mind in conflict.

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
