Looking Back, I See Ahead

February 4, 2019

Aggy and the Wall

Looking Back, I see ahead
The twists and turns
I must not fear nor dread
The world will come
And be before my feet
It’s up to me to go forward
To find, to seek.

Sometimes I Let It Go

March 23, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sometimes I let it go
Sometimes I don’t give it a second thought.

Sometimes I wonder what happened?
What changed your mind and erased your loving heart?

Once I was all you knew
No one else you gave a second thought.

Now indifference clouds the view
Sarcasm is the voice heard a lot
No more gentle caress, no more loving thoughts.

Didn’t happen over night
It seeped in thru empty, shallow thoughts
Taking a awful tole on our gentle, loving hearts.

Sometime turn around look back down your path
See me standing all alone, looking back.

Loving as much as I did then
In the gentle, loving days
Before the empty, shallow thoughts.

Looking Back

March 11, 2015

Benji remembered - Photo by Patrice

Looking back upon my life
Things seem to be
Sometimes
Not very nice.

Looking back not sure what
Got me here
Never saw but felt it near
A presence
Being absolute
Holding me with resolute.

Looking back I can’t see why
I struggled so and didn’t die
Think cause it would pick me up
Dust me off, pat me on the back
Saying words “Go ahead you’re not dead”
“Life has still a lot to offer.”

Looking back down my way
I see I didn’t walk alone
Nor did I saunter
But full stream ahead is what I did
For I had my heart, my soul
And the help a presence offered.

Looking In The Mirror

Looking in the mirror
To see a reflection
Of my life
Looking back at me.

I must smile, laugh
For, forever she will stay
In my life
In a quiet, supportive way.

Tenderness, Sweetness, Butternut Squash

April 2, 2013

Tenderness, sweetness, butternut squash
Mystery in giving not taking back
Flowing freely
Never ever looking back.

Dogma facilitates masking slack
Not telling the truth
Only giving back.

We are one
With what we are
Shovelling shit, taking pills
For now we are feeling
Feeling bizarre.

Will this help us
Find the tenderness we crave?
Or feel sweetness, butternut squash
So far, far far away.
