Against all doubts, against all criticism
We will make a better country for ourselves
Despite the fears, despite the skepticism
We will bring hope for the next generation

Against injustice, fighting poverty
We will build a fair and loving nation
Despite any problems that may come
United we will face and tackle any opposition

This our time. This is our chance.
To have more than we could ever have hoped or dreamed
The likes of Wallace and Bruce
And all who fought with them are urging us on to complete their dream.

And with the many Scots who have gone in the ages before
They are looking down at this time with eager hope
Shouting “Come on Scotland, your time is now!
go for it Scotland make us all proud!”

Our Children’s Eyes

What will our children see When time has past and as seasons flee Just what will be their thoughts On the decisions we made, which changes to their life have brought Will we see in their eyes grattitude? For all the words we spoke and all that we did do Or anger and...

The best remedy

I've heard of this remedy which relieves the hurt and calms a worried soul Recommended to take at least once a day But take it as much as you will For there is no limit to how much you can have It's better than any pill No overdose is possible, no side affects at all...

Her Rage and Beauty

The power, the strength, the wonder. Unseen yet evident. On her wings she carries life giving seed Placing and planting where she chooses Landscapes are changed in an instant When she chooses to express her creativity She whirls and wisps through mountain valley paths...

Sadness

Sadness is a state of mind, an emotion, triggered by circumstance Like loss, or hurt Or some other happenstance What makes us sad? Why do we get this way? Can't we just not think and forget What makes us feel this way? But I think to do so Would be the greatest...

Yes Scotland

Yes we are a strong and proud nation Ready to fight any battles that come our way Ready to send any threat fleeing No matter what troubles come or fears dismay Yes the power of Rome could only come so far At the wall they stopped because we couldn't be tamed With all...

Lest We Forget

Lest we forget the anguish and pain, The price paid for all that liberty could remain A price paid with the currency of deaths unimaginable, And with bloodshed and tears that forever may flow Lest we forget the courage of those men And women who fought for peace to...

Why I walk you home …

It may be due to some ancient code Written in my DNA From an almost forgotten notion of ages past When men were gentlemanly Maybe how I was brought up was a factor In why I carry out this deed Why whenever I can I like to make sure Someone gets safely to where they...

The Show That Unfolds

As I travel along a lonely passenger In this vehicle filled with many Within and without are two worlds that provide a show as I go on my journey Within I see sitting two seats down from me a mother and her children One on the seat and one on the knee So that they...

Just be honest

You know there are things that happen in your life when no matter how hard you try you just cant find it in you to pray to God. I have came across this several times in my life, one time recently. I couldn't pray. I just could not come to God as I normally would and...

Precious Moments

You will never fully understand How much I cherish the moments that we share As time goes on and fills so quickly How much fewer these moments are spare Spare to spend laughing and joking Sharing stories of our days Spare to spend crying and comforting Sharing a warm...
