FORWARD:


As a contributing editor to Patrick’s book, I must give credit to a friend of mine who introduced me to Patrick. During our initial conversation, Patrick mentioned he was a “poet”, writes everyday...about life, love, responsibility, caring...more of what this world needs.


I was intrigued as I learned more about Patrick, his goals have been set...losing weight, winning the national poker championship, publishing his book, Patrick’s Chocolate Cake for Dinner Diet, becoming the next mayor of Greeley, CO, becoming an example of ‘greatness’ to his son. I learned Patrick is extremely motivated by setting goals.


His writings began to intrigue me...at first I wondered...where does he get this stuff from? He can’t make it up! Later I learned that yes, Patrick can make it up! His poetry hits the heart, he writes about things we all go through and have experienced. I sometimes wonder if he is not the “Dr. Zeus” of poetry. Funny, inspiring, sensitive, caring...loving life, poker, poetry, he has shared a few of his best in this book.


I hope you enjoy this book, learn more about Patrick’s Chocolate Cake for Dinner Diet, lets you chuckle about life, leaves you with a smile, enjoying life’s sunny moments, and a call for greatness!

Think Big
Restless wild spirits carousing, arousing, shoo+ng for the stars!
Souls get hungry, looking for love & trouble.
A heart feels pain, love, hope...& the mind dreams.
Today is all that maers, do your best.
Dream wild spirits, go for it, change the world.
I believe in you...have faith in yourself & think BIG!
“Door to Life”
The door to life is always open, what are you going to do?
Are you going through the door to live, are you doing your best, will you try
When you enter the fray, start o & pray, everything is going to be okay.
It doesn’t maer if you win or lose, just play the game so there is no gray,
Go through the door of life and play, live, give...do what you goa do...
“Shadows”
Standing alone in the rain by the lake
The shadows on the lake are beau+ful & enhance the eccentric aura & air.
The air is fresh, clean. The beauty in the shadows, clear...it adds to the ambiance & cheer.
The perfect picture, perfect se9ng. Breathe & take it in my soul brothers & sisters!
Shadows on the lake, consumed by beauty...not fake.
Mountains add to the freshness...each breath is a gi6 of life,
gentle waves come to life and colors illuminate.
Leaves on trees gently blow, magpie & rabbit #ee.
I fall on my knees watching the shadows on the lake.
“Hip Trip”
Life is a hip trip, some+mes a zip trip...you need to give a rip!
Life is great, it can be a frickn, fracking, stacking, lacking situa+on.
Life is a silly, willy, billy, chilly situa+on,
And a ‘do-your-best’ contempla+on—your own personal interpreta+on.
Life is a pickle and a nickel, some+mes a lile 7ckle.
Life is a bale...I may even start working with cale…
And when I get done, I need to get back on the saddle...Oh...Fiddle-Faddle!

“My World”
Welcome my friends to my world.
You see, I am a dreamer o in my own lile world. It appears that you have decided to join.
Come along, evaluate, read and rate.
A star is born, a unique writer, curiously entertaining orator, connoisseur, word sorcerer.
I like to write, do the write thing. I believe in giving living a #ing.
So I urge everybody to read, Patrick's Chocolate Cake for Dinner Diet. It tastes really freakin’ good.
I think you need to try it.
Are there one million of you ready to read a book? I hope its kick’n...
Makes you feel good and is o the hook.
If I could must humbly and poe+cally ar+culate now that you should give it a look?.................P
“Try, Fly
Do not set idly by and let your brain fry,
Give living a try, go ahead and soar high!
Fly like a bird in the sky, start living & loving & get your piece of the pie!
So go ahead and live, you are special & beau+ful,
you have a lot to give,
Believe in yourself and what you do,
try & be happy & never blue!
Here is a last second +p!
Try to be cool & hip & live life with some pip,
because when you are living life cool, life is a trip!
Share, Write, Dream
God told me to share what I write, write what is in my heart.
God told me to give it away, pay it forward, share, write,
About love, peace, dreaming, believing & achieving,
Li6ing other people up, changing the world.
I write about love, slow dancing, reaching down deep inside.
And so, I write from my heart & soul.
There is always something to write about, so here I am wri+ng.
Feel free to share & compare, make everyone aware,
copy & rewrite & whatever helps you win the 7ght…
All I know is I have to write!

“Hipped up Trip”
Love’s trip is a hipped up journey.
Love is a #y, ge9ng high, feeling good inside.
Love is a smile, show a lile style.
Love is a cool connec+on with an objec+on.
Love is a good seek, if you meet up with love don’t freak!
Love 7lls an empty heart with light, love can’t be wrong, it has to be right!
Love makes you grin & love isn’t a sin, if you love instead of hate you always win!
Love is unique & some+mes undervalued.
Love is sweet and a tasty treat—an amazing feat!
When you do have love, don’t cheat!
Here’s hoping love s+cks & there are no big tricks.
Love a lile, love a lot, love is something we’ve all sought!
“Dreaming”
Some+mes when I dream I look like a fool;
I look prey dumb and I act like a tool.
It doesn’t maer, I dream because dreams rule,
Dreaming is so much fun, and really cool.
Dreaming keeps me high and sets me free.
Dreaming helps me the real world to see.
Dreaming is who I am, it’s me!
Dreaming for me is life-it’s the key!
I am afraid I can’t just let things be, when I dream I #ee…
The real world when it hurts. ...I have to dream
“My Ar+cula+ons”
Wiy bantering with a smaering of naivete and a kick’n lile play on words ,
We say with maybe some sensi+ve ar+cula+ons and prose-like manifesta+ons.
With my style and a smile I’ll orchestrate a giant pile of verbal components.
And yes, these are my words I own.
I hope what I write strikes a chord & 7ts,
Transcribing metaphors & trying to be rich and not poor
Because it is always interes+ng to see what life has in store!
It really doesn’t maer, I’ll keep wri+ng about more!

“Life on the Chin”
I feel at peace & serene when it’s a kick’n & cool scene
And all the people are nice and not mean
Because we are all trying to play the game.
Ha+ng on other people sucks and is quite lame.
Some+mes life is at peace & tame,
Some+mes life is hard & wild.
Your soul can get tested & greatly riled.
I’d rather say that I am cool & styled.
So I’m going to feel good inside & win.
I’m going to try to do the right thing & never sin.
We all take it from +me to +me on the chin,
Get up, get going, get a move on because life is not a con...life is real.
“Rock It
Life, its got to mean something...its goa count.
Every day, every play...rock it out!
Rock it out, #y it up, create greatness, energize,
Do what you do, no doubt or maybe, life, here it is,
Another chance, another hope, lets do this...no messing around!
Living is earned, found...greatness abounds!
Life...we’re all in this together in good or bad weather.
We’re all human...we all hurt…
We all need love a sense of belonging...we need to ful7ll our des+nies.
Life—link up, interact, keep up…
Up & at ‘em, up & away.
Life—no excuses, no blame, create your own fac+on with your own interac+on!
Life—live, laugh, smile, create, enrich, try not to be a bitch…
Go ahead & scratch that never ending itch!

“I’m a Star
When I dream in my own lile world, I’m a star!
When I dream, I feel good inside.
It helps me live this crazy ride.
When I dream, I hip-pity-hop. I’m hooked on dreaming, I can’t stop.
I feel like when I dream I’m on top...of the world.
I’m a serial dreamer. I have a vivid imagina+on.
Wri+ng sets me free and give me emancipa+on.
Do not tell me to stop dreaming, it is how I keep gleaming,
While life seemingly is hard, I’m just going to play the dreaming card.
“Its how I roll, dreaming...is...in...my...soul.
I’ve got to dream...I’ve...got...to...dream…
“Doing it All”
Oh my God...I’ve done it all!
Some+mes I rise to the top, some+mes I fall.
I always try to win, get over the wall. Some+mes I fall apart, begin to stall.
That happens, its life, life’s call. I’m not going to stop. I’m not gonna quit.
I’m going to try to give it a good hit. If I fail, I’m gonna throw a 7t…
Because we’re all living life, trying to do our bit!
If I Were...an Owl”
If I were an owl, I would say more than “Who-o-o? Who-o-o, Who-o-o?”
I would say, “What? What? What?”
I would say, “Hi! Hi! Hi!”
I would always say, “Try! Try! Try!
I would ask if you want a piece of owl “Pie? Pie? Pie?
I would say, “Stop hate...try love...
“Full Circle
Life goes full circle. Everyday we live, give...humanity a li6.
Life goes full circle. Everyday we love, learn, laugh...loiter.
Life goes full circle. Everyday we cry, fry...get high...smile, sigh...try not to lie.
Life goes full circle. Whether young or old, we try to stay warm...not get cold.
Life goes fully circle. Live it, stay in it—away from the sidelines.
6
“I Wouldn’t Want to Be...
I wouldn’t want to be an anteater. I would rather be a grape eater or banana eater.
Ants are okay, but not to eat...don’t get me wrong.
I wouldn’t want to be a hippopotamus. I’d rather be a cool-apatomus or a happening-apatomus.
Being hip is okay, but cool & happening is what I need...don’t get me wrong.
I wouldn’t want to be a bumble bee. I would want to be a humble bee…
I’d close my eyes, #y, set myself free.
If I were a dog, I’d want to be a watch dog. I’d want to be a necklace & bling dog.
I wouldn’t want to be a hot dog, I’d want to be a cool dog.
Its okay to be hot, but cool is well...cool...don’t get me wrong.
So, don’t get me wrong...I am glad I am me!
“More, Life on the Chin”
Todays been tough, I’ve taken quite a lile hit.
Some+mes you get beat, lose the bale,
You’ve got to get back up, dust yourself o, get back on the saddle.
Even if you take one on the chin, if you keep 7gh+ng, you will end up with the win.
I did my best, I baled with zest, and now its +me to take a rest...not be a pest.
I’m s+ll alive with God’s spirit in me, so I feel blessed in having this test.
“Clarity
Wri+ng, making new, it is what I do.
Wri+ng helps me think, be alert.
Wri+ng helps me not to hurt & 7gure life out.
Wri+ng could make me big & have a lot of clout.
But, I must digress...wri+ng makes me progress, clears my mind.
When I look for answers, wri+ng makes me 7nd...what I am looking for,
And lets me know what is in store.
Hopefully, what I write is not a bore, helps people soar
To new heights, and most of all,
Hopefully my wri+ng is +ght, cool & out of sight!
7
“Love is”
Love is a tranquil sleep. Love is a passionate embrace.
When two people fall in love, it is a passionate place.
Love is a kick’n & cool part of the human race.
Love is a connec+on in the heart that grows in the light.
Love is cool, and helps you when you are in a 7ght.
Love takes away the pain, stops the rain, keeps you sane.
Love comes at you & hits you in the heart.
Love is a hope, a conundrum...never humdrum.
Love makes you smile and love has a lot of style.
So give love a chance, with love there is always I can, never I can’t.
Love is cool, beau+ful...like a dove...a gi6 from God above.
You learn when you love, you live when you love,
You give when you love, you hurt when you love.
Love is the “King” emo+on...in your heart.
When you are in love, you have to do your part.
So...love goes around...your heart will pound.
So...live, love, do what you do...I believe in love.
“Words”
Everybodys human, everybody hurts, everyone has emo+ons, a soul.
Words mean a lot, be careful when you use them, be careful what you say.
Use your words in a meaningful, posi+ve energy way.
Words can make you smile, words can hurt a heart,
Words can stop you in your tracks before you even start!
Posi+ve energy words are the way to go.
Help other people make it in this crazy show...with your words.
“Cobwebs”
Okay, I messed up, broke down.
Thinking I should get back up, turn myself around, do my best not to frown.
Take down the cobwebs, dust them o, Do my best not to cough, make it good.
The rain had came, I ran away, didn’t want to play, get into the fray I could not slay.
I did my best, need a rest,,,I’ve got to 7x things, heal wounds, pain.
I have to nix the trouble, move past the pain, nix it...move past it...renewal.
8
“Needy
I need to get with my program, get a hug, break into the big leagues...be a star!
I need to get myself in gear, stop the fear, stop being so needy!
I need to make “me” happen, quit messing ‘round.
I’m really bald...no need for fat...not excuses...work hard...work hard.
“Life Related”
Here’s a poem related to life, how do I overcome the pain, the strife?
I have no idea, need to 7gure it out, when I do I am going to scream & shout!
Some+mes there are ups, some+mes downs, some+mes smiles, some+mes frowns.
We live, try, fail, fry...so here I am...falling down, +me to get up, not be down,
My soul brothers and sisters.
It looks like I have some work to do, keep trying hard...not give up on the successful card.
Make it day by day, trying to do things the right way.
Live, live...forgive myself for falling down, tune up my mind, maybe unwind, I fell a bit behind.
Time to get busy, +me to stretch…
My soul brothers & sisters.
“Wandering Mind”
I’ve a wandering mind, always trying to 7nd an inner peace,
Wan+ng the bales, wars, and 7ghts to cease.
Wan+ng a fresh start, a new lease.
Understand, wandering minds...there’s always a des+ny, dreams in all corners…
Understand, a wandering mind wanders willfully...wherever…
My mind wanders about...I wander about…
“What Do I Do?
So, here I am, what should I do? Quit what I’m doing, or become blue?
Should I go for the test, OMG – I need a rest! Life has become a crazy mess!
Its +me to bounce back, change, rearrange maybe even exchange.
Perhaps I am to see what I’ve got, Life is about to get kick’n & hot!
Wish me luck!
9
“Chill”
When life comes at me hard, I step back, chill, go to the dream card.
Yet, I may seem distracted, not there...I beg your pars’…
I’m simply dreaming away, stepping back from the fray.
I dream about peace, everything being okay…
Some+mes if I dream too much, I really pay!
The real world jumps up, smacks us ‘round.
Its +me then to go back to my dreaming ground.
Its how I roll, I like...the dreaming sound.
Journey
The waves in the water make life a lile hoer,
Some+mes bumps in the road are a secret code,
I need to get in a kick’n mode and maybe lighten the load.
The valleys and peaks, streams and rivers are whats in store for livers and givers.
Challenges await...hard work and decisions determine my fate...I believe in love, not hate.
Journey through the day in a cool, happen’n way,
I’m here to say, success and victory are just around the bend.
The mountains and ridges-- just cause you to look for more bridges!
“Precious”
Every soul is precious, every life worth a ton,
Every dream explored, every chance at love grabbed.
Every broken heart can be 7xed with a hug and a kiss…
A lile T.L.C. (Teddy bear hugs, Love-love-love, cheer.)
Every goal has a chance, every hole can be 7lled, every tear needs to fall.
Every smile causes three, every laugh causes two, every love can grow
And that love can #ow right out of your heart,
Every adventure has passion, every day new,
Everybody needs to give more, take less...maybe the world would be more blessed.
“New Game”
Life is a series, journeys and adventures, everyday a new game...nothing is the same.
Life is a series, ups and downs, agitates and irritates, amalgamates...nothing is the same.
Don’t miss out, don’t miss a beat, no regrets at days end…
Life is all about giving it a good play—the centerpiece of life being love...a gi6 from God above.
Life is a trip...(man, is life a trip!), but I tell you some+mes life can be cool & hip.
We all have a gi6...can give others a li6, smile, search for the light, give, learn, love, and live.
No worries about the ups and downs, just try...smile, get rid of the frowns!
10
“Paerer
I wouldn’t want to be catatonic, I’d want to be ‘patatonic’.
If I would have invented the catapult, I would have called it the ‘patapult.
I really don’t have a9tudes, I would call them ‘pa9tudes’.
A comfortable bed should not have a maress, it should have a ‘paress’.
I do think Saturday, should be known as ‘Paturday.
I wouldn’t want to be a doormat, but would rather be a ‘doorpat
I wouldn’t want to be a baerer, I’d rather be a paerer.
I wouldn’t want to be a mad haer, I’d rather be a ‘mad paer...LOL!
“Winning
Some+mes things don’t go quite right, I get knocked down in the middle of a 7ght.
It bodes the ques+on, what do I do to make things right.
I have an idea...get my ass up...7nd a way to win, life teaches us how to take one on the chin.
Losing is unacceptable, we all have to get back a6er it and get respectable...What the ‘heck-table?’
“Sailing Away
Sailing away, I must conclude it’s +me for a dierent play, a new day.
I think everything is going to be okay.
Dreamers get in trouble, some+mes life turns into rubble-I’m growing a lile stubble…
So here’s what I’m going to do, I have a plan...I don’t want to be an “I also ran”...
I want to be an “I can!”
“Loves Prize”
Love passes through the day,
Love needs to always be in play.
Much to analyze, much to ponder,
Can’t stop...my mind must wander.
Dierent types of love, dierent types of friends,
Is it all a means to the same ends?
Confused, amazed, good love should be praised,
A good connec+on should also be raised.
Love goes where the light shines, love goes to the heart,
Love gets to the point, love maers; love hurts, pu9ng you in taers.
Love is interes+ng, when you analyze, strategize, when you get the love prize.
Love never lies, don’t give up on love, keep giving love tries…
11
“Salesman's Fear Talk”
Go away fear, get lost fear; you are not welcome here.
I’m not afraid of you fear (Yes I am!)
What if...I do very well, what if...I can’t peddle what I’m trying to sell?
Only +me & pa+ence will tell...oh well, what the hell?
Fear is a hindrance, annoying…
Some+mes fear toys with my emo+ons...there really aren’t any por+ons.
For feeling afraid, fear is self-made.
Its up to me to change, dismiss fear, go large...goodbye fear…
Angel Love”
Angels reverse scars in your heart, protect and make you smile;
Angels are the way...I recommend the angel play.
Angels...watching, wai+ng, helping, saving…
Some+mes when I am in need, an angel I’m craving.
Angels are here...don’t say they are not…
Angels #y around...never making a sound…
They are there when you need them, angels love...uncondi+onally…
About Love”
Life is ups, downs, peaks, valleys...however it goes.
Some+mes its prey tough, life blows.
Tough +mes make you stronger, help you grow.
All of this shows love is the key.
Love heals a damaged soul, sets one free.
Love helps everyone out...including you & me.
So everyone...give love, share love, create love from sea to shining sea.
Embark on a love journey...theres a lot to learn...enter a love tourney.
Believe in love, have faith in love, make love, give love…
Go out, play...change the world with love.
Break through the love barriers, become a love carrier...share love.
Be ready when it hits you..before you know it, love’s bug will have bit you.
Just love...love with all your heart & soul...please love.
12
“Note from Patrick”
The world is full of many people, dreamers, who change the world with new ideas.
The world is full of lovers who love, share love, give love away.
The world is full of angels, li6ing people with posi+ve energy.
The world is full of smilers, huggers, ready to smile, ready to hug…
Dancers...beau+ful people crea+ng beauty…
Beauty is everywhere my soul brothers and sisters…
Love is Sunshine”
I’m here to tell you when you put sunshine in your heart & soul,
It will make you see the light, feel whole,
It sill make you feel good inside, put you on a roll.
The light in us is called love, plant the light, plant the love; end the darkness, end the pain.
Water, nurture...watch love grow!
There needs to be more light & love in this crazy show.
Believe in love, you will see the light. Believe in light, it will help you in the 7ght.
Believe in love, its really cool, believe in love and you will rule!
Love to the le6, love to the right, love is kick’n, cool, way out of sight…
It comes back my soul brothers & sisters to seeing the light!
What is...Love?
Love is true, not a lie...give love an honest try.
Eat a big piece of the love pie.
Love comes at you like a brick, be careful you might get hit with that love s+ck.
Love is fun to make, love feels good...stops an ache.
Love makes the world go around, love is a kick’n cool sound...make your heart pound.
We all need to have love around, love makes me want to expound...on love.
“Commitment
I commit my heart to you, I commit my soul to us.
Be careful...my heart breaks easily. All hearts break without love.
When you 7nd love, it 7lls a whole in your heart. An empty inside is not a good ride.
We’re all hungry for love, I’m hungry for love.
That is why I commit my heart to you.
13
“I Believe in You”
Lets try this for a start...I believe in the love in your heart.
I believe in you.
It makes me sad when you feel blue, I believe in your smile
I think you are very cool...full of style.
Every day is a test, every day is a trial, I believe you will win because you walk the extra mile.
I believe you are going to win, the best is yet to come.
I believe you are terri7c...have many wins ahead of you.
I believe today is going to be fantas+c for you.
I believe you need to smile as much as possible...gentle, precious soul.
I believe in your spirit...you are amazing, have an amazing day...I believe in you.
“Karma”
Posi+ve energy and good karma go hand-in hand, like the desert and the sand.
Good vibes in your heart give Karma a great place to start.
There are things you can do to sway karma your way.
Jump...up and down, high in the air. Believe in what you do...care.
Intensity and for+tude is a good way to have a good karma play.
Karma is in your hands, karma depends on where you land...karma..
Jungle”
Its a jungle out there…
Everyone looks out for number one.
Some+mes it is hard..not so fun.
It sets you back, puts you on the run.
Its +me to write and have some fun.
Maybe let loose, cause a lile trouble…
Hey! I’m growing a lot of stubble!
14
“Humanity
Look at your hate...deep down in your soul.
What’s missing, God made us all, loves us all.
We’re all in this together, Black, White, Oriental, Asian...all human.
Holding enormous poten+al, capabili+es…
No maer what somebody looks like, sound like…
It is what the heart is...inside the soul and heart that maers.
It’s +me to move forward, work together.
Hate and anger breeds emp+ness, God wants love, peace.
Live by commi9ng random acts of kindness and frequent acts of love.
Pick someone up, when they are down...I say again…
Pick someone up when they are down, don’t just go away with that frown.
I believe...in the innate goodness in everyone.
I believe...in feeling good inside, having fun.
I believe...in roo+ng for our brothers and sisters un+l we have won.
Hate belongs in the past, racism has no bascism.
Everyone in their own way, in a kick’n play, is beau+ful.
Don’t be a hater...Cheers.
“Welcome Life”
Ups, downs...good, bads...happy, sads...welcome to life,
Where peace goes hand in hand with strife.
Sometimes life hurts—cuts like a knife.
Bring it, let’s see what you’ve got,
Before you know it, you could be hot.
In life there is a lot, don’t stand around and rot.
I say again live and give what you have to give.
We each have a gift to share...don’t worry about pain, hurt.
Grin, bear it...living is learning, giving, loving, sharing, caring, smiling…
Changing the world with greatness and random acts of love...kindness.
Sometimes in this crazy world we go out of mindness, Then God sends us a signness and…
Love becomes the way.
At the end of the day, everything is okay.
So smile everybody, we’re going to make it...my soul brothers and sisters.

“Self Talk”
We’re all trying to find our way...organize our play.
Trying to do the write thing, have a good say.
We make our share of mistakes, get the shakes, encounter fakes,
Get scared about shadows on the lake.
We’re all human beings, capable of love.
Love accentuates life, promotes peace.
We’re all players in a giant game...everyday is a new adventure.
We all have our faults, gifts...the good outweighs the bad.
Don’t be sad...Good luck in your journey.
“What is...Love?”
Love transcends, love never ends…
For everyone love is just around the bend.
Love lasts...I remember failed loves of loves past…
Don’t let go without a fight...because when you make love, it feels so right.
Love makes life sizzle, don’t let love go to the dark side, fizzle.
Because love can extinguish the dark side with a chisel.
Love is stylishly hip, a kick’n journey and a trip.
Love is an artistic journey through life, complete with hopes, dreams, strife.
Lovers create, make, sometimes fake...I’m afraid there may be an ache…
But when the connection is in the light, it feels so good and right.
“Perfect Timing”
The days keeps passing by...how time surely does fly everyday that we try.
New adventures await...who knows our future fate? All I need is a chance.
You see, I am going to focus on the ‘cans’ not the ‘can’ts.
It’s time to set my soul free...deal with what is presented to me,
Try to positively articulate the future,
(You can fix a damaged heart with a little bit of light and a suture.)
You see, the day does not stop, might as well be a rabbit and hop,
Try to get on top...no time to play, dance, act, live, give, hope, dream,
Smile, spit, write a hit, throw a fit…
If you believe...want to change, feel like crashing…
As for me
I am just going to be cute, charming, dashing, and very soon start cashing! Peace.

“Ode to Damaged Souls”
The world has many a damaged soul.
Life causes you to crash...wrap your emotions around a pole.
Everyday life takes a different toll.
I am here to tell you with the bad comes the good, knock on wood, I believe you could.
To get the good you'll need to fight the bad, try not to get mad...
Sometimes in life we get had, and sometimes life is cool and rad...sometimes you win.
Sometimes you dream, go off in your own little world, fly away to a safe place.
Sometimes you have to get away from the human race,
Running too fast, trying to change the dye that's been cast,
I'm trying to make positive energy and doing the write thing last.
Maybe I need some chocolate cake for dinner... sounds good to me,
It sounds like a winner you...see this writing thing,
I'm just a beginner...an artistic chain of consciousness spinner.
Sometimes I am a sinner, but I try to learn something new everyday.
I try to be versed in the art of the play.................P
Groov’n & Proofn”
Its +me, for me to break out my rhyme.
At the drop of a dime I can opine, stay in line, write something 7ne.
Groovin’ and proof’n in that ar+s+cally provoca+ve vernacular, which I do,
Wont make you blue... hopefully it is honest and true, hip and alive,
Allow one to #ourish and thrive.
“Sinking Ship”
May I suggest that we smile, feel good, get something done,
Think up a new pun, at the end of the day we can say we have won!
Could I most humbly and possibly cajole, that life is but a stroll,
That if you incorporate a lile heart and soul,
Combined with some unique, outside the box thinking,
Then again, if I could most humbly suggest...there isn't going to be any s+nking!
Before you know, the day, the adventure is gone while you are blinking…
And please most humbly disregard if your ship is sinking.
Don't worry about the past,
Because we have to last... all the shadows have been cast...............P
17
Without Inhibi+on”
Here I sit wri+ng au contraire in my lair, nobody said life was easy or fair,
I am going to keep wri+ng, trying to share.
Resolute in my mission, I want to improve the human condi+on,
Another slam’n rendi+on without inhibi+on…
Le9ng it all hang out, wri+ng up a storm, quite the norm
For this humble writer, 7ghter, enlightener, soar to a new heightener................P
“Word Flow
The world comes and the world goes, when I start wri+ng the words #ow.
Words come out of le6 7eld...always seems to be a nice yield.
You see I write what's in my heart, soul, mind,
Looking in the darkest resources to 7nd ar+s+cally enhanced verbaliza+ons.
I write about life, living, giving... I write about this and that, I'm a prey normal cat.
Hey everybody, hows it going? My name is Pat.
I try to make it funny, I try and make it rhyme. I try to make you smile with my silly, lighthearted style.
Some+mes there is good, some+mes there is bad. But no maer what happens,
I goa keep wri+ng and rapping, living and tapping. ...............P
“Might I...Suggest
Might I suggest that we drive, thrive, connive, do our own thing and stay alive.
Some+mes I ponder while I saunter through life, 7gure out the way, the write play,
Some+mes we don't know what to say. Might I possibly ar+culate?
Love, peace, free will should dictate our fate,
Its up to us if we want to create, be fashionably late, full in love and get a mate.
I try and do the write thing, commit random acts of love and kindness.
I aempt to elevate the soul with kindness.
Elevate the world and art, elevate by giving and doing my part......................P
18
The Puzzle”
Transforma+ons, procras+na+ons, adapta+ons, congratula+ons,
Hallucina+ons, conglomera+ons, eccentric machina+ons, theore+cal observa+ons.
Fantas+c, but not yet dras+c, elas+c, be strong, unlike plas+c.
Strength is write... yes I said right... beauty is all around.
How do you 7gure out a puzzle with many twists?
Wri+ng feels good when it soothes the soul and li6s.
Life is all about commi9ng random acts of love and using your gi6s.
Please stay away from drama and the ri6s.
Don't blow it out of propor+on... keep it real with a stylish #ow...kick’n feel.
Act, analyze...close your eyes, give living a cool try,
Don't get sad and eat boo-berry pie, its always good to be honest, not tell a lie,
If you feel sad its okay to cry, and baby you got to believe me, I don't lie.
So let me be ‘Frank’ with you...hold on my name is Patrick!
So here it is, another ubiquitous write. Another well spun yarn.
Another, I can't believe Patrick wrote this, oh darn............ P
“Make it Poe+c”
Smiling never hurt any muscles. Smiling tends to help out with tussles.
Laughing is okay, it puts you in the light. A group of people laughing is a day-changing sight.
So smile, laugh and for that matter... dream, join the chatter....
It's such a beautiful day in a poetic ubiquitous sort of way, go off with a smile before you play.
It's the only way………..P
“Rages & Pages”
Rages! Some+mes life has many dierent pages.
Some+mes we feel trapped, like we’re living in cages.
Progress seems slow – in stages.
It's +me to break the shackles...the fears that stop you in your tracks.
See the way to the art of the play, the way to live, the way to much.
Up, up, & away – posi+ve vibes, karma, energy, ju-ju, boo-boo!
Silly ar+s+c metaphors predict what's in store,
Life appears...then goes away...nevermore...don't get sore.
Have faith in your core! Soar!............P

About Patrick”
I’m a cancer who likes to try, a dreamer who likes to #y.
I’m a lost cause...with hope.
I try to keep things light, I believe in peace, I try not to 7ght…
Hello, my name is Patrick, I write…
I try to live each day as if it were my last, try to focus on the here, the now...not the past.
You can change your direc+on, the dye has not been cast.
I try to do the write thing...with a poe+c, stylish ring. I try to upli6 the masses.
Please...disregard the irrelevant asses and be you!
Relax, chill away...you see, living is in the art of the play!
“New Lease”
We need to get a new lease on love, peace; have all the hate, anger cease.
Its okay...to be dierent, to be outside the ‘box’…
Its okay...to be you, engage our special talents we like to do.
We need to cut out the hate, my soul brothers, sisters...everywhere in the universe.
Commit random acts of making others smile,
Commit random acts of li6ing up...whoever is down.
Commit random acts of silliness…
Have a willingness to change, rearrange, save your change.
Everyone is uniquely designed for, created by energy, created by love.
Love maers…
Love is all that maers.
Peace out………..P
20
“Cheesy Love”
Baby, I s+ll love you...no maer what.
I’ll always be yours...you will always have a piece of my heart
A connec+on is forever, never goes astray.
Love looks into the mirror, when I love you, you are loved forever…
Even in rainy and cloudy weather.
Love is the number one emo+on, love is a ‘7x-it-all’ po+on.
Love is super cheesy; some+mes love is not easy, but love you, I do.
I hand you my heart darling, slightly damaged, s+ll strong.
My love, you can never be wrong.
I want to rock your world, set it on 7re.
I want everyone to be a love trier.
When its your tun for love my soul brothers, sisters, don’t take a #ier...be a love trier.
Anger, hate can damage one’s fate,
Don’t go there because love is honest, fair….
If you feel a lile bit of love, please share……………...P
Achieve Greatness!”
Passion...it needs to be wrien about!
I have a passion for wri+ng, inci+ng, trying to help people soar to new heights.
Passion in love can make you see stars...reach high for the stars.
In love...you can travel to Mars!
I have a passion for peace in our world.
Peace in our world will bring peace to our hearts, our souls...put us on a posi+ve roll.
Our kids deserve peace, a chance to learn, to achieve greatness…
Develop passions of their own that make our world a beer place.
Our kids, our future, our world…
Deserve a chance at peace...a chance to dream their dreams…
a chance to achieve GREATNESS!……………….P
21
“Stepping Forward”
Look at your hate...deep down...in your soul...what’s missing?
God made us all...we are all in this together...black, white, oriental, asian...we are all human.
We all have enormous poten+al, capabili+es.
No maer what someone looks like, sounds like, its whats inside…
The heart, soul maers...its +me to step forward, work together.
Hate, anger breeds emp+ness, despair, a vicious cycle that only ends in total emp+ness.
Love is what God wants for us, love and peace.
Live...by commi9ng random acts of kindness, frequent acts of love.
Pick someone up when they are down, don’t go away with a frown.
I believe in the innate goodness of everyone...feeling good inside...having fun.
Root for our brothers, sisters, ‘+l we each have won.
Hate is in the past...racism has not bascism.
Everyone in their own way, with their own kick’n play...are beau+ful.
Don’t be a hater...cheers…………………...P
“Protest @ Ball Game” (Insiders View)
The baseball bat was angry...le6, right, le6, right..the poor baseballs were being hit.
.The bat was going to do something about it. It was going to picket and protest!
The game began...the bat stood up before the shou+ng crowd with his sign…
“Save the balls...make the hi9ng stop! Please...I’m begging you!
This is wrong in so many way, one fan spoke up.
What the hell? Why is a bat standing up protes+ng balls ge9ng hit?
Thats what baseball is all about! Hi9ng the ball!
The bat grew angry at the fan...”How dare you! Balls are people too!
How would you like it if bats hit humans & we played ‘human-ball’?
Nobody should hit anybody...we should all live in peace. No more hi9ng! No more hi9ng!
And the baseballs all got a big hug! The bat was happy!……………...P

Gopher Folly
(Based on a true experience….P)
Gophers...in the middle of the road holding a ‘tea’ party…
“Damn good tea,” the organizing gopher said.
Yes indeed, excep+onal old boy.
The only lady gopher at the party chimed in, “Well done old boy, the tea is excellent!
Suddenly, a vehicle appeared on the horizon...headed towards the tea party!
“Pardon me, spoke up one gopher...”but there appears to be a vehicle…
Approaching us at a high rate of speed. Perhaps we should do something?”
Another gopher chimed in...”You could be right old boy, the vehicle appears to be coming…
Right at us! Perhaps we should move?” (taking a sip of tea & bi+ng into a crumpet)
As the car was coming closer...closer...closer…
“Maybe we should do something?” the organizing gopher thought aloud.
“But the tea is so good!”
A big, bald, goofy-looking guy was heading toward the gophers at breakneck speed!
Another gopher exclaimed,”Perhaps we should move…
The vehicle appears to be going faster...faster...faster…
OH MY GOD...IT’S GOING TO HIT US!
SPLATTTTTTTTT, the GOPHERMANITY...the HORROR……….
When the gopher police came on the scene they were shocked!
The carnage was everywhere!
They got a descrip+on of the driver,
Put out an all points bulle+n for a BIG, GOOFY GUY WITH A BIG NOSE!
“P-L-E-A-S-E….I didn’t mean to do it,” I responded. I beg of you...P-L-E-A-S-E----Don’t turn me in!
Oh...crumpets!……………………P

“Peace Out
Some+mes...when I write...I’m in a foul mood.
Some+mes...when I write, I’m an eclec+c, soulful dude.
Some+mes...when I write, I just want to let it all hang out…
Scream, shout, blame...the whole world….pout.
Some+mes...when I write...its good to let go, put on a show,
Orchestrate a groovy #ow.
Some+mes...when I write I like to write about love, accentuate love, promote love…
And all its rami7ca+ons, ela+on, computa+ons, communica+on clari7ca+ons…
Related to love and connec+ons thereof.
Some+mes...when I write I like to remind everyone that we are all human…
We’re in this together...life can be hard...not always easy.
Some+mes...when I write, I hope it makes you smile, emanates style.
Combined with everybody giving it a trial, I would like to welcome you
To Patrick’s Chocolate Cake for Dinner Diet.
It is really one good read! I suggest you try it.
PEACE...un+l further no+ce...my soul bothers and sisters…………………..P
