My hands are soft—
hold pieces of bread,
Lucy’s face as she sleeps,
curled on the sofa,
carry deep sadness,
the uncertainty of existence
in a hardened world.

Gave way to shades of grey
Slowly crept in blue & then green
A touch of red was then slowly seen
Soon a rainbow where black had once been

Become New Again

As the waves continue to crash
The tides still push and pull
The current will not drag me under
I am a new person
I will not let the sadness win.

I saw the signs,
Expected it, hoped
Against hope. But
The signs are never wrong,
And I never misread them.
This time I couldn’t hold you.

Refugee

Refugee
What did you see?
Wish we all were in harmony
Refugee
What did you feel?
Wish this nightmare wasn’t real
Refugee
I am you
You are me
