Cold Winters Day

Poem By Craig Piercy

Walking down the road on a cold winters day
Singing all of the way, not carrying a load
Walking toward my abode, stride by stride
Shoulders back, standing strong and so glad that I’m not wrong
Feeling six feet tall
Life is just a ball

Looking around seeing kids playing, seeing kids smiling
There’s no denying, life’s a ball!

While walking down the road on this cold winters day
A thought comes to mind, like a rush of sunshine
What will these kids be like in 20 years time?
Will they see others just like me?
Or will they struggle in this world to find their very own bubble

You see, kids smile when they are young and free
Yet adults don’t, they often forget there own inner child, frowning
Keeping it in with a quite sounding
Wouldn’t it be great if we all smiled, felt free?
Smelt the flowers of life and feel the breeze, instead of the squeeze

Walking down the road on a cold winters day
I feel like a millionaire, just breathing and smelling the air
For on this walk I stop and talk to kids playing
I hear their voices saying “we will remember”, “We will stay free”
Keep smiling I say and today will carry on, until tomorrow and so on

All this on a cold winter’s day

Daddy's Gone

Wake up, Daddy, wake up
Why do you sleep, Daddy?
You lie there so still
Come back, come back, Daddy

You Walked Away!

The day you walked away
I watched you leave
Begging you to stay
Instead, you left me to grieve

The Amazing Power Of Humanity

People here, people there
People using their power everywhere

Humanity toward others

Goodbye Daddy

He closed his eyes and drifted away
I knew then all I could do was pray

Goodbye daddy goodbye

Taking A Stand

When you see things clearly you understand, you must sometimes make a stand
When things around you change you realize you must rearrange
Why do others find this strange?

A Lost Soul

When you wander around looking for that thing that's missing
It's your soul that's missing

That heartbeat, feeling of retreating
