To survive, we will adapt

Bees pollinate. Flowers bloom. – By C.E. Pereira

The world has not stopped.
Flowers bloom, we stay home.
Bees pollinate, nature thrives.
The world survives; continues.

Nature is not in danger here.
Neither the birds, nor fishes.
It is us being infected; dying…
An enemy that cannot be seen.

Did someone invite the devil in?
It is the scream in my head.
Wake up before it is too late.
A deafening silence in our chaos.

A coldness and silence settles.
Mandatory new rules to survive.
Emptiness fills the silent space.
To survive, we will adapt. Defend!

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
