Poem By Craig Piercy

I have a feeling, a feeling of joy
I've grown into a man, no longer a boy

My life has really changed
Better in some, worse in others
It's my life now, no one else's

No excuses, no pretense, just a huge need for resilience
now the man is here, free of judgements
Free of baggage, free of what holds me back, just totally free

From boy to man we go
Leaving footprints everywhere
With an ever-pressing glow, let's not slow
Now it's my show

A feeling deep down that I will wear that crown
Honest and true, no longer blue

When you've found you, really found you
There is no better experience, it's just so totally brilliant

Comfort in your own skin, just makes me grin
For it's true, that feeling of growing from a boy to a man

It's called Freedom!

Daddy's Gone

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
