Nothing is as it seems

Nothing is as it seems.
You cannot know God’s plan.
Even when nothing makes sense.
Give thanks.

It is not easy.
Yet you are asked to give thanks.
You cannot breathe.
You feel like drowning.

How do you give thanks?
When there’s no lifeline.
Life has gone out of control.
All you see is a nightmare.

It seems easy for others
to tell you to give thanks.
Even when you are at your lowest,
they tell you to give thanks.

Even when you cannot.
You must trust God.
Nothing is as it seems.
Give thanks.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. 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
