What Is Right

January 12, 2021

What Is Right - Photo by Patrice

Don’t know what to do
What is right
My mind is in
A quandary, a plight.

Will tomorrow
Shed some light
On this dilemma
That I’m struggling with

Or will I go on wondering
What’s best
What is right?

Swirling, Whirling Round

Swirling, whirling round
What is right, what is wrong?

My heart doesn’t know
My mind denies
My breath gasps in
My soul cries.

I wander
Taking in, looking out
What is this all about?

Going Thru The Gamut

October 4, 2016


Last used Oct. 4/16

Going thru the gamut
From frustration and anger
To the highest excellence
And of course all in   between.

What is right to do?
What have I done wrong?
What should I do in the  future?
Not letting my emotions
Be so strong?

The answers to these  questions
Along with those I’ll ask
I suspect in not too long
I’ll hear their answers
Bright, clear and strong.

The answers will be
Whispered in my ear
If I’m quiet, holding still
They will be answered
They’ll come along.

Let Me Know

Let me know what is right
What I need
To make it thru this dark night.

Hallowed honour makes the mistake
Thinking its important
What’s at stake.

Nothing matters most of all
Just let me know the name, the voice
I need to call.

Give Me Strength, Power And Might

March 1, 2013

Give me strength
Power and might
To do what
in my heart
I know is right.

No sacrifice
Is too great
When in the end
I’ve done the things
I know are right.

Pain and anguish
May be mine
But if my heart
Turns sad to love
Then it’s right.

So please
Give me strength
Power and might
To do that which
In my heart
I know is right.
~ Patrice
