The Canadian Flag

Poem By Craig Piercy

Red and white with a single maple leaf in the centre
It blows in the breeze
Strong and free, it represents people with so much diversity

I look in awe, for this flag inspires me to want so much more
Flapping so perfectly against the skyline, high on top of a pole
It's hoisted with such pride and passion, stirring something deep inside of me

Opening my heart, allowing me to think of Canada so romantically
Stirring it is, for people died and continue to
To keep its sovereignty, to keep its honor, to keep it Canadian

All this seen by me, a foreigner from a different land
Wanting to move to a country called Canada
Where dreams come true, opportunities galore
I'm so excited about what's in store

So very glad, for today
I truly see the Canadian flag!

You Walked Away!

The day you walked away
I watched you leave

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

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
