It is easier than you may think. Have a look at this;

            + "programmers have yet to learn about design patterns and "

    private static final String p2PartOneText = "Java Design Patterns is "

            + "written, it helps you ";

        File file = null;
        FileOutputStream fos = null;
        XWPFDocument document = null;
        XWPFParagraph para = null;
        XWPFRun run = null;
        try {
            // Create the first paragraph and set it's text.
            document = new XWPFDocument();
            para = document.createParagraph();
            // Set the alignement of the paragraph. The ParagraphAlignment
            // defines a number of values - as an Enumeration - that allow
you to
            // set the alignment to, amongst others, left, right, center and
            // distributed.
            // Show a blank line after the paragrph. The value of 100 was
            // arbirtarily.
            // Set the text of the paragrph by creating a single run. Just a
            // run is needed here as the format of all of the text in the
            // paragrph is the same.
            run = para.createRun();
            // Paragraph two is slightly different; it will have a single
            // set to bold, italicised.
            para = document.createParagraph();
            // Create the first run and set it's text.
            run = para.createRun();
            // Create the second run, set it's text and make sure it is
            // in a bold, italicised font.
            run = para.createRun();
            // Create the final run for the second paragraph. This will not
            // be emboldened or italicised.
            run = para.createRun();
            // Write the document away.
            file = new File(filename);
            fos = new FileOutputStream(file);
        finally {
            if(fos != null) {
                fos = null;

You can see that there is a setAlignment() method for the paragraph and all
you need do is call this and pass the appropriate value from the
ParagraphAlignment enumeration.

Each time you wish to see a different font or treatment in a paragraph,
create a run for it ans set the various attributes of the run to get the
appearance you are after.
