By sharing my writing (Poetry in particular), a life long dream, I hope to inspire others to go after their dreams and goals.

Walk with me

Photo taken by Jaiden Patterson at 7 years old last summer
Walk with me
Take my hand
Look around
Look within

Watch the birds
As they fly
Bask in the sun
Stare at the sky

Walk with me
Side by side
Talk to me
No reason to hide

See the trees
Always changing
Leaf after leaf
The trunk remaining

Walk with me
Arm in arm
Safe you are
No reason to run

Look at the squirrel
On the ground
Forward and back
Yet always around

Walk with me
In solitude
You with me
Me with you

Hear the children
As they laugh
Soon they will walk
A similar path

Walk with me
Feel my love
All is possible
Through God above
