Generation: Written by A. Brown

Poem: Generation, by A. Brown
Performed by Carina Cojeen

To have Strength to persevere
in a time filled with:
peer pressure,
envy and hate,
is a modern-day miracle.

I’ve come to realise,
that the greater the blessing,
the greater the obstacle.

There was a glass ceiling,
until it was broken by
desire not to be,

There are many opportunities,
but only one chance.
Father, help me,
I pray thee.

When disappointments come,
Please help me
to respond with integrity.

I don’t want to be,
another statistic,
whose life ends in tragedy.

You have never left our side.
Your promises are true.
Lord, I need you,
and our generation does too.

-A. Brown
