Soldiers Soldier

Soldiers soldier ~ Illustration by Patrice

Soldiers soldier,
lovers love 
Peace, tranquillity
come to those that soldier on
with love

Make me not
that believes
not in love

Make me a soldier
in that army conquering
hatred, prejudice
giving only 
unconditional love.

Lick Your Wounds

November 28, 2022
Lick Your Wounds ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Lick your wounds
Forget your ego
Dust that battered self off
While looking
To the future

See what’s best for you 
Feel no regrets
Lose no sleep wondering why
What happened

Don’t go deep inside self-pity
Know this was a message
To keep you well
Moving forward 

Skipping a single

Fortunately for me 

Brings changes
I need to see, to be

Fortunately for me.

Once Again

November 10, 2022
Once Again ~ illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Once again I write
What I see
What I’m to hear as the words
Begin to be.

Sometimes so great
Sometimes just grim
But all those words need
Need to be written.

Spoken in text
To those that need them
Those to who
They were meant to be given.

No One Else

No One Else ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one else 
no one will be just the same
cause as you may know
or can see
we’re all unique
never not the same
not the same as
you and me.

No One Sees

No One Sees ~ Illustration by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

No one sees
I need to see.

No one cares
if it’s good
just a necessity. 

It’s left for me to decide 
live with it 
or cast all aside.

Don’t Tell Me

September 29, 2022
Don't tell me ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t tell me 
I must be the same
same as you, not me.

Don’t tell me
my beating heart
doesn’t count.

Don’t tell me 
my thoughts are just lies.

Don’t tell me 
the tears I weep will never
bring back ones lost.

Don’t tell me this
I ask of you
I plead, I cry.

The Essence Of Me

September 7, 2022
Essence of Me ~ illustration by Patrice

No one can 
will be 
the essence of me. 

Me, alone 
is the only one 
I am. 

Pure with faults 
that’s who 
who I am, I can
will be.
