I Didn’t Make It

April 3, 2019

Falling ~ Photo by Patrice








I didn’t make it
Cut from the lot
Standing alone
Not knowing what’s up
What’s not.

I know it’ll be over
I’ll pass on
But for now
I’m lonely, fractured
Having trouble to cope
To move on.

I Feel The Magnitude Of It All

Girl and Dog at the Beach ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the magnitude of it all
It shoves the good
The bad in my face
Making distinctions none at all.

I cope, I handle
Sometimes overwhelmed
One foot in front of another
I struggle and demand.

To have a life
A role in this universe
My little section I can love
That no one else can command.

Sick Again

January 4, 2012

Sick again hard to feel
Pleasant, happy and demure.
Want to lay down, sleep away
But I guess it’s here to stay.
Cope with it, find a way
Make this be a pleasant day.

Reality is sometimes too harsh to cope with. It will get better.
