Quick as lightning

autumn

A platform to share.
Quick as lightning,
the message is spread.
Is this reality?

A double edge sword.
It lifts you up.
It drags you down.
A master puppeteer?

It is addictive.
What shared; who likes.
Brings you a high feeling.
To crave for more.

Unknown persons slander you.
What shared; not liked.
It becomes uncontrollable.
Like a mob with a noose.

Is it a gossip room?
Everyone shares instantly.
Truth and rumour spread.
How do you spot the truth?

To prompt the quick draw.
You can make or break another.
Be responsible, be accountable.
Pause before you click.

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
