Today, heaven was far away

Today, heaven was far away.
So easy to flick the switch.
Where was God? Missing.
Today, heaven was far away.

The day began with its first sin.
Being late, prayer was put aside.
Leaving the soul without food.
The day began with its first sin.

Hell was in sight; Enticing.
The desire to sin; compelling.
Sin took center stage; smiling.
Hell was in sight; Enticing.

Heaven became a bedtime story.
Fading away; becoming a myth.
Sin feasting on the soul.
Heaven became a bedtime story.

Will tomorrow bring heaven back?
The day ends in shame and fear.
Bowed in prayer; asking forgiveness.
Will tomorrow bring heaven back?

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
