To brave each day with heart

To feel contented.
Is this happy? No.
Yet not unhappy altogether.
A heartbeat as steady as is.

The day went smooth.
Errands with no detours.
Nerves relaxed; no stress.
A day sprinkled with softness.

Each day is never smooth.
Burdens to carry; benches to rest.
Some days sad; some rejoicing.
It has pockets of happiness.

This day brought anxiety.
Someone sick; worry sets in.
To be far away from home.
While fear clutches the heart.

Uneasiness follows. On edge.
Afraid! Panic sets in.
Cannot breathe. Anxious.
Pacing with worry. Pray.

A dose of prayer.
For strength within.
To brave each day with heart.
Without which death laughs.

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
