Why Have I

Why Haven't I ~ Photo by Brent

Why Have I
Listened to the wind
Blowing in my ear? 

Why have I
Tried to give back the gentleness
Life has served? 

Why have I
Cried when a sad song
Comes on? 

Why have I 
Not always felt 
That I belonged? 

The answers to these questions 
I don’t know nor can I tell 
For they’re written on a slate
Hidden deep and very well.

No One Told

No One Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one told, no one said
the secrets hidden deep
beneath my childhood bed.

Monsters and thoughts
so deep
didn’t make sense
to a little child trying to sleep.

Only my mother and father
could keep
those things below
my mattress and my sheets.

Letting me just spend the night
counting sheep.

The Telltale Signs

The telltale signs are here
Then they go
Hidden deep beneath
The ever flow.

Hidden Deep

Silent Reflections ~ Photo by Patrice

Hidden deep inside my life
Is the secret to all
I need to prosper, to survive.

Still and silent I will wait
For the answers coming
Holding all before me.

Catch them
See them
Before they dissipate.
