Gift From God

Poem By Peter Generazio

Because of stress, my peronality started to change.

I stopped praying, slowly I turned into the person I despised.

By letting everyday life get to me,
until the day that I have realized.

I have shut God out of my life,
especially when I needed him the most,
I really have hurt the ones that I truely love.

I knew I had to let God back into my life,
I needed that help from up above.

I am so grateful that I have realized what was going on,

I begged God for help, and he shed some ligh a certain way.

I started to realize the most impotant thing in life,
are love kindness, family, friends and to be giving.

I slowly started to change,
by giving my will to him,
which gave me another chance of living.

I can't believe that I let myself get that way,
but now I have gotten myself on track,
I have been giving my time to those in need;

Which has made me even more grateful,
because I know that God has planted a seed;

I try to treat others the way I want to be treated;

I now have this wonderful feeling deep inside,
not that feeling of being defeated.

A True Gift

My vision is sometimes cloudy,
Like a mountain top buried in a mist;
Of the people I really care about,
Those special ones I really miss.

My Life In A Bottle

Growing up nothing seemed right to me.
I felt like the only tree in the forest without any leaves.
There was no specific reason that I felt that way,
but something was missing, that I have felt everyday.

Todays Teenagers

Todays teenagers
My heart goes out to todays teenagers, with everyday pressure, such as
school, parents, and peers. It is a lot to deal with,
which causes a lot of stress and fears.


Why do they hate us? What have we really done?
For a country, I thought was so giving, why are we under the gun?
I was always taught that we should help one another,


Thank you oh Lord for this day.
Another day of sobriety.
I'm so grateful to you for showing me the way.
You have changed my life, and let beautiful people in;


You are my shining star,
unfortunately we live apart so far.
I think of you all of the time,
being away from you to me is a crime.
