You Couldn’t Be

You Couldn't Be ~ Photo by Patrice

You couldn’t be 
what I needed 
wanted you to be. 

No matter
how hard you tried 
you couldn’t be. 

You couldn’t be 
all that I needed 
desired you to be. 

I see you couldn’t be 
you couldn’t be.

I Know I’ve Been Lost

I Know I've Been Lost ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I know
I’ve been lost 
in the wilderness
low self esteem 

Climbing out 
has been hard 
rocks, crevasses 
unholy shards
pierce my skin, my life
my thoughts 

Still I climb 
I push, pull and shove 
a glorious world 
full of
grace, courage

Remember To Love

 Remember To Love ~ Photo by Patrice

Remember to love
Respect thy self.

Let no man, woman or child
Be above the love you show

For if you are lost
To the thoughts of another
You are lost to you.

Hard as it may be
Love with gentleness

Some Things Are Hard

May 29, 2015

Last used May 29/15

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Some things are hard to remember.
They crush the spirit, they crush the soul.
We’ll never know what would have happened
If they never had been told.

Muster pass, remember this
They are not your whole world
Only a small part of it.
The beauty of the rest will still unfold.

Soft And Gentle

August 8, 2012

Soft and gentle
Strong and hard
Much to learn
Lots to discard.

Be you patience
Kind and bright
For whatever
Comes tonight.
