I Haven’t Got The Answer

Wolverine Standoff ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I haven’t got the answer
Don’t know what is the fight
But standing, hands on hips
Feet planted on the ground
Ready to fight and stand
Stand my ground.

Fight for
What I know is good
And what I know is right
Guess that’s my answer
Guess that’s my fight.

Feeling The Waves Of Magnitude

October 15, 2018

Waters Crashing - Photo by Patrice Clarkson

Feeling waves of magnitude
Washing thru me
Smacking in the face as it
Crashes over me.

Washing down to the ground
Ebbing back, coming forward
With sounds of thunder
Hitting high above and below me.

Stand, stand my ground
Wait til it dies down
Wth no more crashing
All around, round me.

A Doormat I Will No Longer Be

June 18, 2013

A doormat I will no longer be
Steeped in anger where
Frustration does abound
This is the time to stand
Stand my ground.

Let no one push
Push me around
No need to fight bicker or respite
Just nicely say
No, this is not the way.

I won’t be intimidated anymore
Today or any other day
A doormat no longer will I be
This is the stand that’s going to see
The nice and happy no doormat me.
