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
Paul McCann



River Roads Of Peace

River Roads Of Peace
By Paul Mc Cann

Poetry like ploughshares have dug the dirt away
opening a road on blood stained hardened clay.

Earthened shells buried deep in different hollow holes.
Guests of war remain at peace.
Heal our their souls.

As we have forgiven those may they forgive us.
Our hatred is uprooted.
Peace lies in the dust.

Cornered not by chains or imprisioned by the guilt,
peace is like a river that washed away the blood we spilt.

Etched into forever our souls will someday be,
in the place God reserves for you my friend and me.
Paul McCann

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.
Paul McCann



Always By My Side

He worked so hard all his life,
to pay the bills and provide.

Somehow through the thick and thin,
you could say we all survived.

With rotating shifts and roster days,
he had some days off.

He liked wee apple buns
and when he spoke his voice was soft.

He put a few bob away,
for holidays every year.

We walked to far away places,
when the weather was clear .

He took me to a mountain top
and pointed out to sea.

'You can see the coast of Scotland from here, '
he'd say to me .

He bred budgies from a roost,
on top of the back yard wall.

In the times when he was off work,
he had time for us all.

My Da tried to learn to speak Japanese
before he died.

No matter where I go in life ,
he's always by my side .
