Will I Show You Who I Am

Will I show you who I am
Will I reveal the face
I know I’ve been?

Will the lines of tomorrow
Be etched
Across my taunt skin?

Will the ones
That happened yesterday
Be still there
In a full or forced grin?

I don’t know the answer
Cause you see
I don’t know who I’ve been.

It’s Time The Master Said

February 11, 2017

It’s time the master said

To live without fear

Without dread

Back to the heart

That rises fine and true

Keeps the soul warm

Surrounding you.

It’s time the master said

Hold your head high

Reach to the sky

Make no one sad

Nor deny

The feelings you feel.

It’s time

It’s time the master said.

Waters Rush

Waters rush

Insanity a must

As the waves come

Crashing down.

No respite

No delight

Harrowing thunder

Is the sound.

Water courses

Forces all

To come with it

Or to drown.

Waters rush



To the sound.

When I See

January 23, 2017

last used Jan. 23/17

When I see

The beauty

The realm that is you

That is me

Then I understand

How earth is made universally

No more hidden virtues

No more what if

I did that

All is clear

Rendered in a cohesive life

Like this

Like that.

Experience Life

January 17, 2017


Experience life

Experience joy

Watch the tide rise

The heart breathe

A pounding employed

See the birds fly

A mockingbird cry

Feel the wind blow

Above and beneath

The evening sky

No remorse employed

Regrets not even a few

All life is abound

With joyous blessings too.

The Answer Came To Me

January 13, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The answer came to me
Not in a flash of light
Nor as a wave crashing in the night
That those past lives lived
Come to us in a way
So simple and so straight away
They come in our DNA.

We remember things gone by
And don’t know why
But the reason is
They are in our DNA.

Such as when you think
You’ve been here before
Think again
For you have been
It’s all written in your DNA.

They tell us what we need
What will make us pleased
It’s all there in our DNA.

When you think you’ve been
In this situation once again
It’s most likely true
The blueprints shows us
Thru and thru all that’s written
There in our DNA.

Why we laugh and grin
Why we cry and don’t know why
The answer is in no other place
It’s our saving grace
There within for eons…

How Do I Know

January 12, 2017

How do I know
When to go
When to stay?

No one can
Tell me
At least not today.

Maybe tomorrow
Its another day.

Then I’ll know
When to go
When to stay.
