My Heart

September 16, 2022

Diva and Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

My heart rules, my heart says
Be the best and then leave the rest
Don’t look for bad nor tolerate those
That bring it.

My heart hears all kinds of things
Water crashing on distant shores
A baby bird looking for some more
The calling of a lonesome wolf.

My heart feels the touch of necessity
A coffee warm, so tasty
The gentle caress from one
So loved.

My heart does all these things
While beating life and breathe
Into everything.

Why Bother

September 13, 2022
Why Bother ~ Photo by Patrice

Why bother 
To be in the midst of anxiety 
To dwell 
Within destitution? 

Makes no sense 
To me. 

Be free to see 
Feel 
The joys of happiness  
The heights of ecstasy. 

It’s a choice to be 
A decision 
made by you, by me 
Let it be.

Power My Life

Power my life
To be the best
The best
I can be.

Let no secrets keep me
From being that one
I want
Need to be.

Let joy soar
Singing far above
And
Around my head.

I see what I’m capable of
All I need
All
I want to be.

Terrible Things

Terrible Things ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things have happened 
Terrible things 
Terrible things live
Exist. 

We must live
Trying
Not to harbour 
But
Eliminate
Those terrible things.

Not hear, feel 
Allow
Those awful 
Awful
Terrible things.

Don’t fear the light
Nor the darkness in the dead of night
They will all embrace you
Lead you
With a guiding light.

Can’t See

September 1, 2022
Can't See ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t see where I’m going 
nor
where I’ve been 
the road is rough 
too many bends 
for me.

Will I come
out to the open? 

See the path before me 
gently sloping
to a valley full of fun  
no sadness nor depression 
so deep. 

Hopefully 
this is what I’ll see
will be.

The Sun Shines Bright

River Beauty ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
Mists have blended
Into the water beyond
No one sees bees
No bats fly
In the expanse that surrounds

Nor does anyone hear
The cry
They’re gone, they’re gone

I rest, I sleep
Maybe there I’ll see
And
Seek a world that once here
Belonged.

A Sadness Deep Inside

March 21, 2022
A Sadness Deep Inside ~ Watercolour by Patrice

A sadness deep inside 
festering, crying 
pleading
to be let out 
let outside. 

To be free 
to wander, find solace 
be happy 
come alive 

This is all 
that
sadness asks 
all’s needed 
for that sadness deep 
deep inside.

Maya, Maya Angelou

May 29, 2014

Maya, Maya Angelou ~ My Hero.

Maya Angelou was and is my hero, my saviour.
Long before I wrote this blog or anything for that matter, one day, I came across a Daily Affirmation calendar of Maya’s sayings and other affirmations
inspired by her. 

I needed it, no matter the cost.
You see, at that time I had very, very little money to spare and to spend it on a ‘Daily Affirmation’ calendar was well, frowned upon ~ by me.

It was a life preserver, a lifeline to a drowning soul. 

Her writings are magical. They saved me. Made me feel like I was important, had rights, dreams and could dare to dream and accomplish what I desired. This grand lady inspired not only me, but the whole world. I am so grateful for having this wonderful, talented, perceptive lady to guide me in my life.

Adieu great, fine lady, adieu. 
~ Patrice.
