Truth looks back in mirrors


Hot looks from men.
Are you serious?
It has never happened.
I’m plain. No such luck.

There’s no Valentine.
No candlelight dinners.
No sparks of romance.
Chemistry got left out.

Marriage and picket fence.
I’m resigned to being without.
That is all behind me.
So too, is beauty.

What gifts did I come with?
Beauty would’ve been my choice.
God’s gift was hardworking.

Am I bitter? No.
The grass is greener from here.
It is an illusion. Yes?
Truth looks back in mirrors.

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
