This Morning I’m Struggling

April 4, 2014

This morning I’m struggling
Unsure, crushing blur
Can’t see around the bend
Can’t see free or happy.

Looking, trying to see
Be the good in this my journey
But this morning
It evades me.

Only feel failure, sadness
Struggling, struggling
Just don’t know
What or where I should go.

A lot have it worst I know
Makes me feel guilty
For I know I’m blessed
Have so much, so many opportunities
Yet this morning I struggle
I’m struggling.

Buried, Buried Deep Down An Abyss

June 26, 2012

Buried, buried deep down an abyss
Buried deep beneath all this
How did this happen?
Why to me?
Buried, buried crushing me
Don’t let me be buried
Buried alive
Don’t let this happen
Please lift and pry
Open the heavens
Let me see sky
My heart beats forever
Let it be
As the sun shines through
Don’t leave me buried
Let me survive.

We will not leave you there
We will not desert you
We will not leave you buried
We will stay and rescue
Miracles happen
And a miracle is you
Be patient we’re coming
Coming for you.
~ Patrice

Please say a prayer that those trapped in the mall rubble at Elliot Lake be found
alive and go forth with happy, wonderful lives.
