They belittle religion.
Constantly poke at beliefs.
Does this empower them?
Or are they tormented?

Frequently finding fault.
Persistent in their quest.
To lash out constantly.
It is disturbing; unhealthy.

Why this compelling attitude?
This concern in meddling.
Such interest in tormenting.
Like a plague is this focus.

Does hate make one blinded?
Short-comings to be taunted.
Consumed with belittling.
What of one’s own beliefs?

Are we judge and jury?
This right to post insults.
A desire to torment.
Let another to stumble.

A stumbling block, don’t.
That leads another into sin.
A plague, being obsessed.
Actions that encourage sin.

To poke fun at a religion.
Why this obsession?
If you don’t believe,
why the need to be obsessed?

By C.E. Pereira



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
