And I call Him Abba


He is the Creator.
The promise of forever.
He is Love.
And I call Him Abba – Father.

He called me by name.
I am His forever.
He is with me always.
Even though I tend to forget.

He is my whole universe.
He holds my heart and soul.
Yet freedom to choose is given.
To turn away or walk towards Him.

Each day, a new beginning.
Humanity in me tested always.
A tug-of-war with good and bad.
I decide which path I take.

Life’s path is ‘one day at a time’.
Like the song, my choice each day.
A conscience that fluctuates.
Weakness and strength my battle-field.

The hour of awakening at dawn.
Wisps of my dreamscape lingers.
My first thought is my first prayer.
Will I struggle, or let myself be led?

Many times I’ve asked for forgiveness.
Yet, I relive the same sins again and again.
My humanity in its brokeness and weakness
My Father ever forgiving, ever loving.

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
