Working Hard

Working Hard ~ Photo by Patrice

Working hard 
But seem stuck in debris 
Struggling, attempting
To get free. 

Is help on the way 
Am I by myself 
Can I pull it off 
Sit back, relax 
Harbouring no doubt? 

This I hope, I do pray 
But as of now 
I’m stuck
Disaster’s stinking muck.

Confusion, Despair

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.

Struggling, Churning Round

Struggling, churning round
Don’t know where there is safe ground.

Grasping, holding tight
Fighting to see some kind of light.

Struggling, churning round.
