Comment: Amen!


Don’t scroll down!
Type Amen!
It comes with instructions.
If you have a heart; if you believe.

“If God protects you on the road daily,
don’t scroll without typing Amen”.
What would you do, ignore?
Your conscience is unsettled, right?

Is social media you conscience?
How many Amen’s have you typed?
Who made “comment” the judge?
Why make “like” feel bad?

Is typing Amen enough for you?
That you’ve done what was asked.
What does it mean to you?
That you’ve done your duty.

Pulling at heartstrings.
Postings of pain and hurts.
Send up your prayers to God.
Why do you need to type Amen?

Is typing Amen your prayer?
There is more to prayer, right?
Don’t ask “Type Amen”.
Instead ask “Please pray”.

Do you love Jesus?
“Like” if you do; “Amen” if you do.
Shouldn’t it be…
Do you try to be like Jesus? Amen.

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
