I Don’t Care

I Don't Care - Photo by Patrice

I don’t care
If you’re white or black
Whether you’ve seen the sacred cow
Any of that
That makes us different
In thoughts and acts
We are still human beings
We are family
Joined it seems
To live life as best we can
Making full of love for all
All of us
Other beings.

Death Is Overpowering Me

Lone Dog – Art by Patrice

Death is overpowering me
Coming, telling me
What to do, where to go
Where to be.

Death is walking beside me
Holding gently, telling me
Souls who go don’t leave
They too, are alongside me.

Death is breathing life inside me
My time will come but not now
Go live a life full of love
Fun and beauty.

This death tells me.

Looking Out My Window

September 1, 2016

Looking out my window
Seeing life displayed
Playing out sometimes
In misery
Sometimes in loving grace
I can see no happy feeling
A penitent, sad face
But all is as it should be
All live life
trying not to scar
Or leave a marring footprint
A telling trace.

We Are Lucky, We Are Trained

We are lucky, we are trained
To live life as if we’re not insane.

No one knows for sure
Nor has one the right
To live life thinking
All will be perfect, be alright.

Take the misery
The sadness and the lame
Take them to a happy place
Or leave them
For someone else to claim.

No heart is pure
Without regret
No life is lived
Without some sadness put into it.

We are lucky, we are trained
To live life as if we’re not insane
