falls short and in your mind; there is turmoil and unrest and such frustration

resplendent, there's a peace of mind that answers everything!"

John McLeod, If Home is Where The Heart is
John has been disabled since childhood, and began writing poetry to help him cope with the difficulties of his situation. He believes that words can be a powerful healing tool if used with loving intention, to uplift, encourage and inspire. His poems are wrought from his own experience and were published in the hope that they would help others.
Be motivated by the words of John, "Life, though, is full of compensations and I have been well blessed throughout my 'Life Journey' with good friends met and made along the way. Life is a kind of swings and roundabouts situation; if you can't kick a football you turn to other pursuits."
John lives in a small fishing town near Edinburgh, Scotland with his very loving family and delights in the company of his great-niece and three great-nephews who bring "their own special magic". He is retired after a career in Banking and intends, in time, to write his autobiography.
John writes motivational poems which will makes you stop and think.
He has published two poetry books, "Peace..be ever yours" and "Quiet...flows the love".
It is with regret that I write, John passed away August 2006. The wisdom in his
poetry are words that I will always cherish. I have been blessed that John left me the copyright and ownership to all of his writings.
I hope by sharing his words and wisdom with you that John's talent will live on.
Below you will find a sampling of poems that contain words of wisdom from
"Peace...be ever yours"
For old time's sake
Come take my hand
And walk with me
In gardens sweet
In this fair land
Where joyous, free
Delight we'll meet
And know that here
All time stands still
Where from the dream
Refreshed we'll wake
To vision clear
And drink our fill
From Life's bright stream
For old time's sake.
Empty fears we all have,
Most worryings are needless,
But still we fail to understand
And go on fretting heedless.
How often then to find
Our troubles scarcely worth a penny,
Imagined hurdles, truly so,
And bridges crossed, too many!
Below you will find a sampling of poems from "Quiet....flows the love"
Here is a wish that says:
'Warm, happy hours be yours,
Shadows are of passing note
But healing laughter cures.'
Be, therefore, ever joyful, Friend,
And walk on gladsome feet
Towards tomorrow's brand new dawn
And promise sweet!
And all great truths contain
A golden thread within
And wisdom's precious grain
From which Man can begin
To find his destined way
Cast off toil's fettered bars
Through Faith's long weary day
To reach the stars!
