I Didn’t Know

When I didn’t know nor find
The thing that occupied my mind
I wandered thus
Took a bus, then a train
In hopes of finding a refrain
That would sing answers
To the questions I wondered
And not be all in vain.

Inside The Heart, Within The Soul

March 26, 2018

Study of hands and paint brushes ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Going deep inside the heart
Within the soul
Feeling things I didn’t see
I didn’t know.

Crying words that have
Such knowledge
Words I need
And didn’t know I knew
Or would now know.

Breathe life lived
Deep inside the heart
Created within the soul.

I Didn’t Know, I Don’t Know

Watercolour Art  by Patrice

I didn’t know, I don’t know
How it would go

Could I reframe
Laughing, smiling or crying

Hold it close
Let it go

Take a step to the left or
Back to the right

Go anywhere
But does it seem right

I didn’t know, I don’t know.

The Bottom Falls Out

The bottom falls out
That’s when I see
The dirty truth
That’s been hiding
From me.

I didn’t know
I couldn’t see
All that sordid, disgusting
Cheating on me.

Now I’m free
I can see
To help those in the same state
That once held
Imprisoned me.
