Maybe, I just don’t care anymore

Art by C.E. Pereira

Carefree days of simple pleasures.
On the spur of the moment choices.
To get in the car and go visit friends.
A lazy day, out for a meal at a cafe.

Now, the days merge together.
One day same as the next.
Deja Vu! I did this yesterday.
Same routine. Same chores.

A drudgery like a wet rainy day.
Waiting for the sun to come out.
But it stays hidden in the gloom.
The same day fades into the next.

The loop continues its merging.
Carefree days are gone. Poofed!
Is it Monday already? I’m not sure.
Maybe, I just don’t care anymore.

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
