The World

September 18, 2018

Watching the Sunset ~ Photo by Patrice

The world doesn’t wait
For what I have to say
It moves forward, spinning
Light, dark everyday.

The world doesn’t turn back
Nor stop in it’s tracks
Because I’ve fallen, fell
While traversing my path.

The world doesn’t care
If I start to cry
There are others burdened heavy
Some have died.

The world doesn’t leave me
Far behind
It holds me, helps me
Giving me all I need
To survive.

Why We Do What We Do

Perplexed Deer ~ Photo by Patrice

 

 

Why we do what we do
Never knew, never understood
Didn’t have a clue.

Standing here, standing there
More or less
Standing anywhere.

Keep me close, hold me far
Never say you did or didn’t
Do that.

Why not come, why not go
All is strange, but then
Who’s to know?

Tender Mercies Envelop Me

August 6, 2015

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

Tender mercies envelop me
Hold me still, holding me.

The solace I need
Comforting, showing me.

Suffice to say I feel comforted
Safe, in the arms of mercy.
