first_imgOur HeartsBy Matenneh-Rose L. DunbarMade of only soft flesh without a boneMade to be flexible and ready to bendMade of how we see the world aroundmade to swifter big problems suddenlyOur hearts plead to go on……………………Made to shed tears as a vent for hurtMade firm by the sound of pleasantriesMade bubbly when your smile radiatesMade weak by actions of the unfriendlyOur hearts sing a song…………………….made a hero by the loud acclaim of allMade to rock against all the odds in lifeMade green as a lawn new spring timeMade to glow as candles behind a glassOur hearts rests in a cradle……………Made to break when placed in shockMade to rejuvenate its self-healingMade to rosy again after the deep fallMade to tango in lilac and purple yetOur hearts soft but stronger than goldTwo Blind MenBy Matenneh-Rose L. DunbarAlong the metal wall of the presidential groundsTwo blind men felt their way down a clean pathThey multi stepped as slowly their hands gropedWith swinging white canes to navigate graduallyMuch vigor was placed into getting to destinationMy heart skipped a beat to see them do their bestThese…………. Two Blind MenOne wore slacks while the other was suited fineThe ironed black pant with white shirt was sharpSeemed like the suited guy was a office workerHis pal in slacks was matching in red and blueThey were sure to get to duty as they huggedIn close commune their goal was singular hereThese……. Two Blind MenInspiring puffs rise from their journey of a dayHands on each other back serves as self-beltsGuarding each from the cars busy Capitol HillTen thirty daily means commitments to themReady to face the pains and drains of todaySentiments float over why there is little careThese………. Two Blind MenHer SacrificeBy Varney L. S. GeanFrom the instant she knew beforehandA child growing her small belly heldThe sings all there she knew the truthHappy was she months later she boreThe moment when joy had no boundaryHer SacrificeHer love her nursing for the child she boreForsaking many things for the child’s futureToil and sweat for the child must be nurturedHer aim to make better won’t be ruinedThroughout times she did the best she couldHer SacrificeThat youngster will be greater she acclaimedFor all her efforts smiles her sweet face carriedShe did not falter not even in dire momentsHer newborn she prayed should be betterShe knew how far and whatever it tookHer SacrificeToday she laughs when mothers wailToday she smiles when people ask herWho is that greater man or woman with you?For all her efforts it is time to beam motherFor without YOU life would have been futileHer SacrificeA Whole New LevelBy Varney L. S. GeanStarted out like a blur out of nowhereStreaming down so rapid like cascadeA whole new levelHeadlong to get the paramount of allNot halting as everything spiral fasterA whole new levelIn this time minds jump start like boltsLike thunderbolts the sharpness mattersA whole new levelIn the long run results will be probableSomething to make frowned faces smileA whole new levelShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

They fell behind in the early stages when Dunfanaghy scored after a mix up in the Cappry defence. Cappry got back on level terms when they were awarded a free kick in their own half which was taken by our stand in keeper, Conor McCormack, who delivered a great kick over the Dunfanaghy defence. Shane Rowan got on the end of the delivery and showed amazing control when he took the ball on his chest and then in one fluid motion expertly chipped the ball over the advancing keeper to score to the back of the net. A real contender for goal of the season. The lads were so dazzled by his skill that they couldn’t concentrate on the rest of the game and went on to concede 6 more goals!!! Fair play and thank you to all the young lads who came and made up the numbers.CAPPRY ROVERS U14’s Cappry Rovers played host to the Cappry Colts team on Friday evening and proved too strong for the Colts.

Great from a clubs point of view to see so many young players getting loads of football at the club.CAPPRY COLTS U12’sFintown harps 0 Cappry Colts 5The Colts travelled to Glenties on Saturday afternoon to play against the hosts Fintown. The Colts came out of the blocks fast and Niall Ryan tested the home keeper in the 1st minute, shortly after this Fintown had a great chance to open the scoring but Shea Doherty pulled off a great save to his left. The Colts linked up well through Patrick Long, Charlie Griffin and Niall Ryan to put Sean Ryan through to score after 15 minutes. Niall Ryan scored number two before halftime. Fintown battled away after the break but Niall Ryan nipped in yet again to get his 2nd and Cappry’s third shortly after the break. The Colts were now playing nice football with Darragh Carroll, Ronan Callaghan and Ethan Deery impressing. The Colts scored their 4th goal through Sean Lyons ten minutes from time after good work by Eoin McGonagle, Odhran Quigley Doherty and Ethan Deery. Three minutes from time Niall Marley scored his 3rd goal of the season from a Patrick Long corner.We would like to thank Fintown for a very sporting contest, match referee Seamus McGroary and the 12 Colts who all played.CAPPRY CRUSADERS U12’s Cappry Crusaders were away to the Ballybofey United Cubs on Saturday afternoon at the Finn Valley.

Cappry tried hard for a winner and were unlucky when Dylan Gallagher hit the crossbar from a free kick in the last couple of minutes.
