I Don’t Want To Be You

I don’t want to be you
I want
Want to be me
Allowing nothing to stand in the way
Whether the path be straight or crooked
It doesn’t matter
It’s the way I’ll travel on my journey
To be just me

Let Me Be, Let Me See

Let me be, let me see

All the magic unfolding

Here in front of me

Let no one say

I didn’t laugh or cry

In the face of yesterday

Maybe then

I’ll be happy

In spite of all I think

I’ll never be

The World Is Moving Forward

Filtered Sun ~ Photo by Patrice

The world is moving forward
The old one has come to an end
The sadness in between is harsh
Sometimes you think
It’ll never end.

Then the dark clouds drift apart
A sun radiating brilliant light
Shines down
On the troubled traveller
Giving a guiding light.

Sadness Streams Down My Face

October 7, 2019

My Ursa and me ~ Photo by us

Sadness streams down my face
Remembered of another place
Trying to correct wrongs done
In that other time, that other place
No help
Can be strong enough
No help to carry me away
From that sad, sad place

The Coldness

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

The coldness covers and blossoms
Amongst dead and dying leaves
No heart is safe from these icy fingers
Embracing you, embracing me.

Covering, spreading across the land
Bringing cold some won’t withstand
Then it’s gone
Gone from the hidden, sleeping land.

Replaced by warmth growing
Flowering in the meadow, blooming in a tree
Another season guides life to expand
Spreading across this land
Thats’s in front of me.

Hoping For The Best

3 Faces of Foxy - Watercolour Painting by PatriceHoping for the best
Waiting for the next
Adventure to happen
Nothing says it’ll come
Nothing says it won’t.

Hoping for the best
Knowing it will be
A time I’ll caress
Nothing but the best.

Tortured Are The Souls

Pale Bodies ~ Photo by Patrice

Tortured are the souls
I see
Writhing in pure agony.

No remorse can be seen
Only furious anger
