Gently Lay The Burden Down

Gently Lay The Burden Down ~ Photo by Patrice

Lay the burden down 
Caress it softly
Hear the ground moan quietly
From the weight you laid down

Feel no anger, no remorse
Your work is done
You’ve travelled the entire course
Now, you are the one
To show the way.

Not deviating 
Not today.

The One

Safe and Strong ~ Illustration by Patrice for Ginn and Company's math book, 'Starting Points in Mathematics'

I march ahead
Leaving no trace, no dread.

Heading to an unknown grace
To a place I can be the one.

 The only one who loves this person
The one I will become.

I Am The One

September 25, 2012

I am the one
Who knows me best.

I am the one
I must trust to be the best.

I am the one for me to love.

I am the one
To fill my heart
With nothing but the best.

I am the one who knows.

I am the one.
