The light is strong today


A bad penny always turns up.
And the day can easily flip over.
A day filled with darkness.
Nothing felt except the cold.

Reaching out to choose life.
The mind not sure of itself.
Don’t despair, be strong.
The morning brings light.

Just like the sun sets each day,
the rising sun greets the new day.
Warmth is felt, hope spreads.
Daylight dispersing the darkness.

A heart beating with hope.
Will today be different?
Blocking the mind’s weakness.
Will the heart’s choice soar?

A day to fill with light.
To push away unwanted shadows.
Will darkness take over? No.
The light is strong today.

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
