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. 
~ Patrice

Hear The World

Hear the world come to it’s end
Listen to mourning flowers
Sway to and fro
And then

Hear the mighty mountains
Roar their anger
Frustration
To all that’ll listen.

Hear the world plead
Cry
For those lost
In the mayhem.
~ Patrice
