I Don’t Know

Sunlight on Water ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know what’s to be
Not my responsibility
I do know I can’t be afraid
Of the future nor remorseful
Of my past destiny.

My duty to me
Is to combine what I don’t know
With what I do know
Living in the midst of that
Which is now a blessed me.

I Don’t Know, Neither Do You

April 12, 2018

I don’t know, neither do you
Where will we go when
We’re through.

I don’t know, neither do you
But we do know where
We’ve been and been through.

Let The Ruckus Roll

Let the ruckus roll
Let the happening
Take its toll.

All is sufficient
Some of which
I don’t know.

Let the ruckus be
Let it travel on
Like the rest of us
To find its own true destiny.

Living In The Moment

Living in the moment ~ Photo by Patrice

Living in the moment
Finding a way to go
To my salvation
A road I don’t know.

Picking a fight
With one who scolds
No remorse
Only things I do know.

See the light
See it shine ever so bright
Follow it
Follow it into redeeming night.

I Don’t Know

I don’t know
Nor will I be
Entrenched in anything
Filled with misery
I won’t call
Weep or wail
Sad words
They won’t prevail.

Marching on
Marching forward
Taking positive
Shielding my soul
From all
Nothing more
A coward.

See that light
Feel it fill the sky
Warm my heart
Pour radiance
Throughout the world
Bring glad tears
To my eyes.

Broken House ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know
What the heart doesn’t care
Buried in messed up
I sip from a cracked, broken cup
Tears run
My heart weeps
For the love, the mystery
That wasn’t mine
To keep.
