Even as God forgives

Sin touches me daily.
Of thoughts; of words said.
The flesh, in its weakness.
No day ends without sin.

I know I sin each day.
Is sin a habit I do?
Just like I need coffee,
to start my day.

Can a day be without sin?
No; yes. Maybe. But how?
To unlearn talk first.
To be conscious of thought.

Not an easy task.
Bad habits to break.
A daunting process ahead.
To pause thoughts and words.

This human weakness.
To continue in sin.
Even as God forgives.
The flesh corrupts again.

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
