May My Soul Find The Secrets

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness
Greatness in all of thee.

Yes
May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

There In My Heart

March 4, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

There in my heart
The world comes alive
Feeling the love, strength
Of those I abide.

Dwell deep within
Then rocketing back out
I be the one my heart
Needs me to be about.

Courage To Understand

December 15, 2014

Courage
to understand.

Strength
to get it done.

Tolerance
to know
not everyone
is the same one.

Kindness
to guide
yourself and
those lost.

Awareness
to know when
and what.

Yourself

That’s all
it costs.

Did You Forsake Me?

July 2, 2014

Did you forsake me, leave me to die?
Will my heart break, will I know why?
Power and strength are not given to cry
But for me the world is misery
Forsaken, cloudy and die.

Wondering Why Or Did I See

June 19, 2014

Wondering why or did I see
How the heart mends
Without any seams.

Tragedy, chaos and most likely strife
Rip holes in my being
Then along comes kindness
Dipped in strength
Changing everything.

A smile, a laugh, a gentle caress
Hold me together
Thru anything.

I’m not wondering
I know, I see
With love my heart mends
Without any seams.

Husk Falls

May 20, 2014

Seeds, Tree and Squirrel ~ Photo by Patrice

Husk falls, dropping to the ground
Seeds of wonder spattered all around.

Dead or dying not necessarily their fate
Taking food, taking strength
From the earth, the ground on which
They were spat, they grow and create.

Slowly, quietly up to mighty trees
Strong and wondrous they unfold
Dropping seeds that too
Like magic wonder, grow.

Gold and Silver reign
You have sacrificed so much
To stand on the podium
This momentous day.

Power, strength and fortitude
Along with dreams of magnitude
Made come true
The Gold and Silver reign today.

Stars in every way
You have done the work
You’ve earned the right
To hold Gold and Silver
Close to your heart tonight.
~ Patrice
