Terrible Things Happen

September 23, 2020

Terrible Things Happen ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible things happen
In terrible times
Suffer and subjugate
Seems to be the way of life
In this certainly
Not a nursery rhyme.

Will I persevere
Will I see the light?
Questions, answers
Not seen tonight.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll find my way
Maybe then joy will be
The cloud I ride upon
Spiriting me away.

Lost

Forbidden virtues
Hidden, lost
Make my life
Chaos
No reprimand
No solicitous time
Just lost
Lost.

Maybe tomorrow
The sun will shine
Maybe then I’ll see
The light
The reason so sublime
All will be ok
Right
In my not tortured mind.

Living In The Moment

February 6, 2018

Living in the moment ~ Photo by Patrice

Living in the moment
Finding a way to go
To my salvation
A road I don’t know.

Picking a fight
With one who scolds
No remorse
Only things I do know.

See the light
See it shine ever so bright
Follow it
Follow it into redeeming night.

I Don’t Know

I don’t know
Nor will I be
Entrenched in anything
Filled with misery
I won’t call
Weep or wail
Sad words
They won’t prevail.

Marching on
Marching forward
Taking positive
Shielding my soul
From all
Nothing more
Than
A coward.

See that light
Feel it fill the sky
Warm my heart
Pour radiance
Throughout the world
Bring glad tears
Healing
To my eyes.

Sudden Clouds

July 15, 2015

Thunder Clouds ~ Photo by Patrice

Sudden clouds
Come crashing down
Throwing thunder, lighting
All around.

Not to rest, no respite
Chaos, fear just surround
Bringing dread
The only feeling to be found.

Over soon
To see the light
Feel the sprinkle washing hope
Throughout the night.

No more quaking
No more fear
Only soothing trickle
Cleansing clear.
~ Patrice
