No One

No one 
No one goes down the road
I need to go
no one sees the things I see
no one does

no one feels
the pain 
the shame I can’t conceal
I’m sure
no one does

But up above, surrounding me
is a presence that I know
I feel, I see
embraces me

Guiding me throughout
this perilous journey
like no one else ever does
no one
no one does.

Seeking Help

Seeking Help ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Seeking help, seeking closure 
seeing the way
with the vision
from all
surround me. 

Grateful, amazed
this could happen 
my salvation
within, around
enveloping me.

Totally In The Dark

Totally In The Dark ~ Photo by Patrice

Totally in the dark 
Absolutely unable to see 

Whether the world will 
Come and hold me 
Keep me safe 
Throw me to the wolves 
Surrounding me 

Could it be 
The wolves will be 
My saviour 
Surrounding, protecting me 

Totally in the dark 
Absolutely unable to see.

Failing To See

 Failing To See ~ Photo by Patrice

Failing to see
The reason
Failing to see
The beauty
In all the majesty
Surrounding me.

More so what
Has happened
What I know
To be.

It may be
I’ll step within
The beauty
All the majesty
Surrounding me.
