Just Be

IT IS NOT WHAT YOU DO, BUT WHAT YOU ARE
WAS SAID TO ME, BY NOT A FEW, BUT
BY SO MANY, SO FAR.

TO BE? TO EXIST? SEEMS TO BE MY LOT!
OH NO, NOT SEEMS.
BUT BE IT SO, ONLY IN GOD.
BE ONE WITH HIM, BE ONE IN HIM,
TOTALLY IMMERSED, IN THE ALMIGHTY BEING
GOD!.

ACCEPT BEING IRRELEVANT, ACCEPT VULNERABILITY
INTEGRITY. BRING ALL TOGETHER
LEAVE NOTHING UNDONE.

THIS, ONCE AGAIN
SAID TO ME.
A WAKEUP CALL TO
HUMILITY?

LETTING GO IS SAID TO BE EASIER THAN
LETTING BE.
THE SAINTS WILL TELL YOU INCESSANTLY
HUMILITY, HUMILITY, HUMILITY.
SO
FOR JUST NOW, JUST BE
IN HUMILITY.

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
