My Heart Aches

September 30, 2022

My heart aches for the life
That could have been
The life cut short for no reason
Other than seemed a good thing
To do in the universal scheme.

My heart aches, my eyes bleed
Nothing is fair that I perceive
Maybe tomorrow sense will breathe
Understanding into all of this
Catastrophe.

Can I Be Vain

September 28, 2022
Can I Be Vain ~ Photo by Patrice

Can
I be vain? 

Laugh
and
show distain
for that
which I don’t appreciate? 

Would I be judged
and
found to be a shallow
miserable entity? 

Can
I afford to be?

Seek Then You Shall Find

Seek Then You Shall Find ~ Photo by Patrice

Seek
Then you shall find 
Hidden treasures 
Most divine. 

Where
Did they come from 
When
Did they arrive? 

Is the secret 
The answer
You need to answer 
To surmise.

Why Bother

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 ~ Photo by Patrice

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

September 8, 2022
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

Fireworks in the Night Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

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.

Hear The Bells Ring

August 25, 2022
Hear The Bells Ring ~ Photo by Patrice

Hear the bells ring 
Some birds sing
While chimes announce
The coming of daylight
In the early morning spring. 

All is right
All will be as nature
Deems it to be
Far into the quiet darkness
Of night’s fading light.
