The kid feared no dragons

autumn

The kid with fears.
Fear dominated, fear ruled.
The fear of hunger.
Cold fear gnawing.

The kid cries in anguish.
Hunger inside, growling.
Clawing, sharp pain.
Sanctuary, the mind calls.

Finding the key.
Unlocking the images.
Enter this secret world.
A sanctuary found.

Escaping from reality.
Blank pages changing.
Stories coming alive.
Into the lair of dragons.

Dragons spitting fire.
Of dragons not feared.
Flying dragons.
Onto their back, riding.

Of dragons not feared.
From the blank pages
the dragons appeared.
The kid shows no fear.

This key kept hidden.
To be used when needed.
Blank pages waiting
for the kid to imagine.

A safe place, this sanctuary.
To rest a weary body.
Where fear is defeated.
To restore courage, to mend.

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
