My Blessings: Gifts of Inspirational Poems
This book, written by Pedro Smith, is a book that’s written by a poet who’s known hardship. Smith was in a terrible motorcycle accident that left him in a wheelchair for three months when he was only 19 years old. This experience made him start writing down thoughts on how to get through the experience. Pedro culminated this into a book of poems that sheds light on never letting go of your dreams and always having the determination to overcome any obstacle.
Food For Thought
This book was written by Eric Paschal. Paschal suffered through many obstacles that many other people face. Having led a life of alcohol and drugs, Paschal tried to commit suicide before God gave him a new life. With poems like “Spiritual Flower” and “Stand Up”, Paschal shows that anything is truly possible!
Words of Comfort
The name says it all, doesn’t it? This book was written by E.D. Arrington and mostly consists of comforting poems that may help when a loved one passes away. Arrington actually wrote the book after having many friends and family request poems to be read at funerals and memorials.
