My Example


The Wheel Of Life

By Paul McCann

Sometimes I get caned.
Love is like a bamboo stick
Sometimes I get pain.
Sometimes in life I get sick
Sometimes in life I am healed
Life is after all,
a series of things to feel.
I don't mind at all.
In life things turn like a wheel.

Path Of Peace

Path Of Peace
By Paul Mc Cann


Peace is an easy path to tread
Peace is where our fears are mislaid
Peace is beginning to restore
Peace for each man, woman and child
Peace for the troubled streets gone wild
Peace is for the old and the young
Peace in the end will overcome
Peace builds trust into a lifestyle
Peace is a friendly open hand
Peace is a place to understand
Peace in the end will overcome
Peace is for the old and the young
Peace is a legacy to leave
Peace is when we don't have to grieve
Peace is and end to all the hate
Peace is why we negotiate
Peace for all the victims of war

A Hard Call

A Hard Call
By Paul McCann


Day after day the same question keeps running through my head.
Is this child we’re expecting alive or is this child dead?
The destiny of an unknown answer is yet to come.
It’s a hard call to take when the hope of this life goes numb.
Like a ship tossed at sea I’m calm in the eye of a storm.
As miscarriage came God reclaimed the life of our unborn.
Grief for life in the womb and tomb, brief the time it was there.
Both of us felt emptiness like life in the womb stripped bare.

Love Will Find A Way

Pre-Phrase (Paul McCann)

This is a structure of poetry I created that has one phrase or line repeating as an answer to the previous line of the poem. The phrase will then become the totle of the poem.

My Example

Love Will Find A Way
By Paul McCann

Like when you've cried all night and day.
Love will find a way.

Like if they say to go away.
Love will find a way.

Like when we fight for what is right.
Love will find a way.

Like if you're heart is shut locked tight.
Love will find a way.

Like when you're hurt and on your knees.
Love will find a way.

Like when I say forgive me please.
Love will find a way.
 
Paul McCann
