Understand ~ Photo by Patrice

Understand what I should do 
What I should be 
Believe in myself 
My being 
Being a kind, gentle 
Human being.

In a time gone by
We laughed, we cried
We joined hands to understand
The way life goes
No tears were lost
No embrace ignored
We lived it all
Life itself was our reward,

I Have Been Feeling

I have been feeling
Not so great
Everything matters
But not at stake.

The life I live
Must be honoured
No too hard
Nor can’t be done.

Understand I can
Will overcome.

I Don’t Know The Answer

I Don't Know The Answer ~ Photo by Brent

I don’t know the answer 
nor the question 
I was asked 

I’m living with 
what has happened 
what has come to pass 

Will it still be here tomorrow 
will it be all I need
I need to ask 

No answers come forth 
because the answers 
are hidden 

Hidden deep 
deep within
the questions asked.

Heaven Help The World Understand

Heaven help the world
There is no tomorrow
If we don’t stand and
Let nature be around.

We alone cannot supply
Our food nor make rain
Come pouring down.

We are but a small dot
In a world
Spinning round.

Strange Things

Strange things have happened 
Strange things have been 

Please Lord 
Let me understand 
All these things.

Heard them say 
their words with feeling 
Heard the tone
plaintive call. 

Knew my words
compared to theirs
were small  

they have the stature 
their words say
it all 

I look within myself 
and know
I still have to write
those words given me 
I have to answer
inner call.

No One Seems To Know

No One Seems To Know ~ Photo by Patrice

No one seems to know
nor do they understand
the way to heaven
is always open
it’s there
at their command.

In It’s Grip

March 13, 2020

We’re ‘In It’s Grip’ but not the weather. Stay safe and well

Ice Storm March 24, 2016 ~ Photo by Patrice

In it’s grip
It’s grip so tight
Hearing ice crack
As limbs fight to stay aloft
In the cruel, bleak night
Sparks shoot into the sky
Wires break, electricity dies.

We wait for help, to understand
A world changed, transformed
Across our little plot of land.
No cell phone works
No lights come on
Except from generators
Throttled up, throttled down.

While chainsaws roar cross the land
We do our best
To clean up, to understand.

Everyday I See Something

November 13, 2019

Stairs ~ Photo by Patrice

Everyday I see something
That resembles twelve
Part of nature, earth, sky
The clouds.

Breathing in, breathing out
as I turn
Whirl about.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll understand, take it all in
Then tell the rest of the world
What it’s all about.
~ Patrice
