Never Known Where I Belong

January 11, 2019

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Never known where I belong
Seems to me my whole family
Is just wrong.

Why? Why?

Neither does my love’s
Seem willing to embrace
Me strong.

Why? Why?

I don’t know where I belong
Wherever I go
The same seems to apply.

Why? Why?

Am I from another earth?
Do I belong in a time
Gone by?

Can’t say
Don’t know what’s wrong.

Or should I just understand
The world belongs to those
That accept different as they are
Part of the woven web
Is what we are.

We belong, we belong
I now know where it is I belong.

Why Not Understand

November 23, 2018

Why not try to understand
All the confusion swirling round
Like a crazy marching band.

Don’t know where, don’t know why
But somehow I need to cry
Release the hurt, set free the sigh.

Move beyond the crazies
Then maybe, maybe
Understand the reason why.

Let Me Write Something Smart And Clever

November 5, 2018

Let me write
Something smart and clever
Telling the world
Secrets they didn’t know.

Pour my thoughts out
Convey all the things
I understand
And now know.

Hope they show
Compassion, loving kindness
And a knowledge given me
That til then I didn’t know.

In A Time Gone By

July 12, 2018

Brandy ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

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

June 28, 2018

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
And
Will overcome.

Sadly See

June 4, 2018

Sweet Thor ~ Photo by Patrice

Sadly see panic, terror
On the face of one I love
Can’t help
Have to let it be
Pass thru, let it pass
Understand it did happen
But now
Now it’s in the past
Where you can let it be
What it was
What came to be
I can’t know nor understand
Only support and be there
To help you thru
This past, awful memory.

Understand, Don’t Understand

Understand, don’t understand
How the world turns round
Can’t conceive, see the concept
Of what will come to be.

All fits together, all is a mess
Nothing left undone
All’s well and is what
Is the outcome.
~ Patrice
