Be thankful

I’d take a boring day anytime.
I may complain at times.
Today the same as yesterday.
I thank God for ordinary days.

I walk the streets without fear.
The sidewalks filled with others.
Going about our daily errands.
I thank God for freedom.

The absence of gun shots.
The drums of war silent.
Children with happy faces; laughing.
I thank God for peace.

It is Sunday. I often work.
A rest day could fall on a weekday.
While others spend time with family,
I thank God for work.

A drop of happiness spreads.
It shines bright; it smiles.
A day I savour to the full.
I thank God for such blessings.

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
