I’ve Gone The Distance

March 18, 2019

Scratchboard Horses ~ Illustration by Patrice

I’ve gone the distance
I’ve paid the price
The fruits of my labour
may not be suffice
I’ve toiled, anguished
Over minor things
Leaping over hurdles
I’ve just about brought
My heart to the brink
Because I love you
I believe
It’s worth everything.

Then I heard the calling voice say

Believe in yourself, believe today
Believing is the only way.

Your heart be full of joy
Your words convey pleasure
Your eyes see pure beauty
Your ears believe.

The Winds Of Change Are Changing

June 2, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The winds of change are changing
The known is not here
We all believe in the future
We all want it to be right here.

The winds of change are changing
Bringing the future back to here
Everything we’re holding
Everything so oh so dear
Will soon be far, far in the rear.

The winds of change are changing
The present soon too, far in the rear
The future before us
Hold it close, hold it dear but
Never forget those we cherish
They’re now in the rear.

May My Soul Find The Secrets

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness in all of thee.

May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

My Mom ~ Photo by Patrice

Tenderly, I think of you
For the world was right
When I could hold you
With no forsaken thoughts
On my mind
As we laughed and talked
And oh so tender
Were those thoughts.

Tenderly, I think of you
You were my world
You gave me life
You showed me how
To navigate throughout
Any cursed strife
To hold on, to believe
For you gave me love

Sorted, Scared

April 20, 2014

Sorted, scared
Wondering just what happened.

Foggy, blurred
Can’t conceive what I heard.

Mastering, believing
Seeing there is a way.

Still, can’t function
Can’t believe this day.
