True Source, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Rhyme, People, Relationship

True Source
by Patsy Jawo

My style, my finesse, my grace
My guile, my invents, my name
No dreams do I thus chase
All my greatest achievements created
Games ever played for the raid
Ah the sweetest investments made
I am my fate, master and king
The captain of this massive ship
Steered and glided along this strip
Of life, love and laughter for eternity
I follow the wind wherever it goes
And cruise with water as he flows
My rhythm, growth and destiny
Converged to atone via music
I now do the totem moon dance
Strictly for free and still spirits
Harmonised as the setting of the sun
No guns, violence, lies or hatred
Plenty puns, shutters and baking
Of buns, cakes, biscuits all in tins
Tasty, shared and delightfully eaten
My flags fly high and soar the sky
My smile brightens up overcast parts
And mends every broken heart
When pretence steers us off course
I am the navigator to ensure
Every path returns to its true source

Appearances. Poetry by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Rhyme, People, Relationship

Appearances
by Patsy Jawo

I am in business of life not work
Organised with all not victimised
Shadows in turn crop the spectrum
Reflections of projections long lost in battle
Souls in limbo crying, dying, tormented
Salvation a choice not taken yet always waiting
A life of aching, hating and faking not worth living
Taking more than one should and still expecting more
Giving nothing or less than required, still we complain
Being saved and blessed endlessly, no appreciation
Praying only for that which we want, not for the good of all
Ignoring that which we need for vanity, ego and lust
Seeking peer approval and making comparisons when each is perfect as is
Inadvertently lodging cancerous memories who only want to be free
Insisting we know it all when our cluelessness has never been more evident
Hunting, handling and being hoarders of unnecessary information
Serving only to drown us in ignorance and keep us further away from truth
Assuming we have the full picture with the slight amount we consciously process
Feeling pride, arrogance and superiority as seeming tools we created but which are unreal
Living lives as though these illusions we have come to believe are real
Refusing to accept there is more to existence than appearances
Acting with no self-pity, giving thoughts about failure and loss power to dwell
Being victims, pretending blindness and sabotaging self by getting in one’s own way
Carelessly risking all lives with ridiculous thinking when everything can be overcome
Stop already I say! It is time to live greatly, abundantly and with inner eyes open with faith
Agreeing that we are more than enough as we are and nothing diminishes us
Above all that the love we are is beyond anything we think we know or understand
And there can be no greater power than that which we allow to manifest

Roof Top, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Nature, Life

Roof Top
by Patsy Jawo

Get it on the roof top
Otherwise you lose out
The Emerald green grass
Fertile and healing
Grows healthy crops
Sunshine adds its mass
Moonlight coats with finesse
Rain does the nourishment
So get those talents out
Let their rein be visible
The veins of creativity
Will never lie still
And it is not our place
To shut out the light
By closing the drapes
But to wallow in it
The rays of greatness
Let them colour our skin
Tan our minds and soul
Then show off our new look
Gift it to the world
People, places, things
Revel in the sketch
Drawn on the easel
Our life’s blank canvas
Love it, love ourselves
Get on the roof top
Sprinkle our rainbows
Keep all lives shaded
With our unique blend
Of flavours and tastes
A collective blend
Formed from every being
Radiating bright
Illuminating all
Reaching all corners
Spreading good waves
Into every cave
Plus hearts, minds, spirits
And never stopping
Whatever the case
This is our set place
Atop evermore roof
With feverish offerings
Spine tingling showers
Of mystic ventures

Sacred, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Relationship, Love

Sacred
by Patsy Jawo

When you left I thought it was for good
Now I know you reside in my heart
On your anniversary I always sulked
Now I choose to wear bright colours
How dare I be so selfish?
Where was my gratitude?

I spent two years in a mental flood
Because of my own lack of control
I cried and begged for you to stay with me
I let others lead me
Not knowing all along you carried me
Indulged me and awaited my understanding

I was so hung up on losing you
I forgot to celebrate the great times we shared
I always knew there was a reason for you in my life
Little did I know I would have you only for seasons
You are my reason to smash my goals
Over and over, one by one, I smash them

Now I realise they were your goals too
That they are our goals
For we are connected for an eternity
By universal ties beyond standard minds
Your lessons guide me daily
Forever showing me the way

You are an integral part of me
So how could I miss you?
You taught me love
Not just of others, but love of Self
Love of life and a love of living
Fulfilled humility and giving

The answers to those nagging questions
Are now that I love you, not loved you
I have a blessing in you
How did I ever miss that lesson?
My gratitude is never ending
Ever present and ever constant

I have begun anew
Led by the universal spirit
To heights of the abundance, wealth and success
We always knew we would achieve
My faith is unshakable
My purpose steadfast

The vision crystal clear
The time is NOW
The certainty in my heart now rules
I am a free spirit, free to give
Receive, share and enjoy love in abundance
Yours included

Thank you for your kind and virtuous nature
For your love drives and inspires me
Welcome to our empire
I trust you love it
Here’s to many more years
Of our celebrated love, success and gratitude

The Coin, by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Life, Society

The Coin
by Patsy Jawo

Over the hills, mountains and valleys
Lies beauty untold and mysteries unsolved
That which is only wondered about
As where things are pure, good and great
A place yearned for like a distant land
Only to be reached in the afterlife

In these cities, towns and villages
Are sights to behold, discover, treasure
That which there is never time to explore
And is here now and waiting to be seen
Experiences to be savoured, cherished
This life, the other side of the same coin

That which is near can also be afar
For distance is a creation of mind
Expressed as matter, so solid and real
Beauty is never here nor there, just is
Always can be appreciated
Enjoyed, visited, imagined, beheld

Life is neither before or after, just is
Laughter and love to be seized in the now
The now of life which all there really is
Imagination makes up the future
The past a collection of memories
The present being the gift to adore

No time to wonder what will or could be
Take now to act on what is and can be
Find in this moment joy, beauty, love
Manifest in this life good and great things
Know right now is your power to create
Reach your destined heights, the heaven within

Pain Gain, Poetry by Patsy Jawo

Genre: Life, People

Pain Gain
by Patsy Jawo

Stomach twisting pain
Surely death has come
I am alive
But how come

Brought me down
To my knees
Another reminder
Human mortality
Just how fragile
I am humbled

To feel pain
Is to be alive
To not thrive
Is to die
Life is the gain
From pain and strife

Momentary pain
How long this moment
Times of happiness
Periods of sorrow
It’s all or nothing

A big part of us
These emotions take
To remind of life
Not to define us
To wake our feelings
Not kill our being

I focus hard
Away from grief
That I may find
A helping hand
And come through this

Tis my journey
This my learning
My slice of life
To feel this gripe
Tis my yearning
To see this through

Find myself
Know myself
Grow myself
Through the pain
And the gain
Love my life, love my Self
