I Haven’t Got The Answer

May 22, 2019

Wolverine Standoff ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I haven’t got the answer
Don’t know what is the fight
But standing, hands on hips
Feet planted on the ground
Ready to fight and stand
Stand my ground.

Fight for
What I know is good
And what I know is right
Guess that’s my answer
Guess that’s my fight.

Tied In A Knot

March 19, 2019

Long, lingering ties ~ Photo by Patrice

Stomach tied in a knot
Don’t know what is, what’s not
Blessed be the ones
That know their path, their way
No one need show.

Me, is it me alone
Doesn’t know the way
Can’t see the trail
Lost in woods dark and travail
Calling out is of no avail.

Breath in, breath out
Calmly think, think it out
The way is there
The signs will show
Just stop, look, see
Then for sure, you’ll know.

Confusion, Despair

January 25, 2018

Lion & Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

Confusion, despair
Don’t know
Which way to twist.

Fighting heartache
Fighting a vacuum
No air.

Survival is the call
Even if it may feel
Your back’s to the wall.

Stand true
Stand and know
There’s only one you.

You are the one
That’ll come thru
Brave, wonderful you.

Will I Show You Who I Am

February 15, 2017

Farmhouse Face and Lilacs ~ Photo by Patrice

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.

When The Sorcerer Comes To Town

October 26, 2015

Fox Hound Parade ~ Photo by Patrice

When the sorcerer comes to town

The earth will stop and rotate back around
No friendly comment can expose
A sneaky agenda found beneath the folds
Then and only then will laughter stop a train
Heartache be nothing and nothing to blame

When the sorcerer comes to town

Will you be here or over there?
Will I stand tall or fade to fair?
Will trees bend dropping leaves
Upon the ground
Or reach up scratching heaven’s sky?
Don’t know but I will tell you why

When the sorcerer comes to town.

I Don’t Know

June 10, 2015

Last used June 10/15

Why it happened
I don’t know
Dealing with the aftermath
Is not a pretty show.

Maybe I’ll be better
Maybe I’ll get thru all this
I don’t know.

Sorrow and sadness carry me
Make the world slow
Forever, it seems no pleasure
Caring I don’t know.

Will it end?
Will I be happy once more?
I don’t know
I just don’t know.

Tell Me Something

June 2, 2015

Tell me something
I don’t know
Open up my heart
Let my soul know.

Don’t go down
The street of hurt and anger
Or God forbid
We don’t know the answer.

Tell me something
Tell me something
I need
I need to know.
~ Patrice
