Biography of Craig Piercy
I have been writing poems for only 6 years now and have compiled over 380 poems all about life, love and everyday thoughts and events that I have observed throughout my life.
In January 2010 I published a book called 'Reflections of Life' a composition of 131 poems now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and my own website craigpiercy.com.
This truly is my passion!

Craig Piercy Poems
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?
Death Of My Father
The day Dad died, I cried I cried for me, for my loss For I would never see him again alive
Spick-and-span, clean shaven Living in their own haven Dressed so proper, looking like a copper
He closed his eyes and drifted away I knew then all I could do was pray Goodbye daddy goodbye
Volcano Of Passion
As the passion builds inside, my heart beats faster My mouth goes dry My hands become clammy My eyes widen in anticipation
The Canadian Flag
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
Dawn Of A New Day
I woke up this morning No longer yawning, with direction A light has come on I now feel I want to fight on
The Flight Of The Pelican
As the wings of the beautiful pelican spread As the pelican lifts his head As the pelican takes flight, I remember his plight
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
Take Me Away!
The longing to have someone To take me away Far, far away, take me to a place I haven't been, to a country I haven't seen
Father And Daughter
The bond, the love, the connection When she looks at you, you melt When she holds your hand, you melt When she cuddles you, you melt
Wake up, Daddy, wake up Why do you sleep, Daddy? You lie there so still Come back, come back, Daddy
The Amazing Power Of Humanity
People here, people there People using their power everywhere Humanity toward others
My lifeblood Without it, like a flower without water Like a rose without smell Like the sky without stars
Cold Winters Day
Walking down the road on a cold winters day
Singing all of the way, not carrying a load
Walking toward my abode, stride by stride
Shoulders back, standing strong and so glad that I’m not wrong
Feeling six feet tall
Life is just a ball
Looking around seeing kids playing, seeing kids smiling
There’s no denying, life’s a ball!
