I want silence inside


The lights are dim.
Gloom in each room.
Father, vanquish I pray.
You are my shield.

Music of worship fills
each and every room.
Candles burn on the altar.
Silent prayers sent up.

Cleanse my mind.
Remove unclean thoughts.
Father, forgive I pray.
I allowed evil to walk in.

Mend my broken soul.
It cries for my body.
It sobs for my heart.
I want silence inside.

My soul is weary.
Or is it my heart?
Father, carry me I pray.
I don’t know the answer.

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
