Sacrifice Needs Not To Be

December 14, 2018

Golden Eagle ~ Illustration by Patrice

Sacrifice needs not to be
Nor neither give in
No
This is not your destiny.

Abuse no one in your passage
Just
Proud, strong and kind
These are what is needed
In all of human kind.

When I Think Of What I’ve Done

November 28, 2018

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

When I think of what I’ve done
I wonder how this could be?

I’m a mortal, no one special
But still I see this beauty
Coming from within of me.

Then I realized
That God has given me
All that I am
All that I can be.

He does this with us all
The sunset, the whispering tree
Even that nasty insect
Which bit me on my knee.

God is within us all
And I’m glorified to know
He’s forever within of me.

Why Not Understand

November 23, 2018

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Why not try to understand
All the confusion swirling round
Like a crazy marching band.

Don’t know where, don’t know why
But somehow I need to cry
Release the hurt, set free the sigh.

Move beyond the crazies
Then maybe, maybe
Understand the reason why.

Normal

October 25, 2018

Face Study ~ illustration by Patrice

Times are tough, people rough
Struggle to maintain
A sense of normal.

A kind of place where grace
Is the highest trait
That we take and try to make it
Seem so normal.

When you stop doing the dance
They’ll play another tune.

I Break My Heart

September 4, 2018

Henry ~ Pen and Ink Art by Patrice

I break my heart, injure my soul
Sacrifice my love
Feeling remorse forever more.

Nothing
Will bind the pieces together
Must take it out of mind.

Feel
The injuries, the heartache, the crying
Then leave them all far behind.

I Sit Here In My Splendour

August 27, 2018

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

I sit here in my splendour
Wondering where do I begin
It isn’t any other
It’s me
And I have to contend
With the matter, the matter
I laughed about
Now it’s everything
Everything I hold within.
~ Patrice
