What you need to.

What you feel too
Doesn’t matter if it
Never sees daylight
Only known on pages
Of a book closed tight.

Let it out
Let it be recorded on
The slate that makes you be
What you’ve become
You see.

Definitely Not The One

April 22, 2015

Starting Points in Math ~ Illustration by Patrice for the publisher, Ginn & Company

Definitely not the one
I thought I’d write
Maybe then the one
I need to write.

Blessed be the time
That I see I’ve done no crime
Only good
For the sake of mankind.

That’s what I’ll write
Fill my pages full of beauty
Or maybe just delight
Yes this I need, I need to write.

Sitting Down To Write

February 23, 2015

Sitting down to write my life
Hear it flow from start
Thru heartache, pressures
And some strife
Coming out full of joy
Learning, seeing warmth glow
Radiating with sweet love.

Can this, could this be my life?

One More Time I’ll Write

October 7, 2014

Last used Oct. 7/14






One more time
I’ll write what I feel
Deep down in the midst
Of something that I didn’t know
Did exist and sure don’t know
What it is.

If I Need To Write

July 15, 2014

Starting Points in Math illustration by Patrice for publisher, Ginn & Company

If I need to write
I will write.

If I need to cry
I will cry.

If I need to see why I pray
I’ll find why I need to.

I Used To Write Most Every Night

July 10, 2014

I used to write most every night
About what was my passion
My insight.

Now, tonight I collect my thoughts
Watch the sky
Watching planes fly by.

Can’t write no wondrous things
Can’t bring myself to find passion
In anything. ~ Patrice

I Write Today

June 3, 2014

I write today things I need to say
Things that can’t be left in the back of a sodden mind
Need to get them out
Need to see just what they’re all about.

I will write them down
Whether they be trivial or profound
That’s what I’ll write down.

Sometimes I Write

July 22, 2013

Sometimes I write
Sometimes I let it ride.

The blue sky, the green
As far as can be seen
Gives me something

So sometimes I write
And sometimes
Sometimes I just let it ride.
