Taking A Stand

Poem By Craig Piercy

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?

In life as in work things change
Sometimes for the better, sometimes worse
Often you think of it as a curse

Imagine for a minute if things stayed the same
Remained constant never rearranging day after day
Month after month, year after year just staying the same
Would this not kill the game?

The beauty in life is the changes that come and go
It’s often like the seasons changing
It allows us to grow be stronger
Inspiring us to develop with a desire to want to live longer

For today I see and now I decree
From this day forth I make my stand
To live my life as if I were in a band
Play music freely, sweetly and completely

To live life deeply and sing songs of living
With a heart so full of desire to give
Life will never again be the same
I will remain

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

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

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
