Regrets

autumn

There will always be regrets.
Ones, we don’t want to face.
Even when death comes calling.
We refuse to do amends.

To leave a legacy of regrets.
Unresolved. Unsettled.
Don’t let regret eat away.
Such a heavy burden to bare.

The hurts. The fights.
Of keeping grudges.
Finding it hard to forgive.
Like a fester, eating away.

We carry this heavy baggage.
Its weight pulling us down.
We let pride be our shield.
Our heart pays the price.

A lifetime of regrets.
Time cannot turn back.
The need to heal. To fix.
Only closure brings peace.

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
