COLLECTION OF POEMS: “MY FAITH: LOVE”
I haven’t meditated about writing these poems.
It’s not a book, as it might be for a poet, that is necessary for my own livelihood.
It’s a simple collection of poems that want to praise themes like love and faith, themes, that today unfortunately are more and more replaced by hatred, the yearning for power, war, riches.
It would be beautiful to be able to be as simple as God wants us to be.
“If you don’t become like children you won’t go into the Kingdom of the Heavens”.
It’s exactly this simpleness that I would like to be the foundation of this collection: not oriented in the direction of fame, but into the hearts of everybody.
It’s up to you to welcome this message.

He’s born, here he is! It’s our Lord. He seems little and defenseless, he’s looking for a place to live. Here, he’s knocking at the door of our heart. Come Jesus, fill indeed our life, give a sense to our […]Continua
How many thoughts, how many decisions to take; how many uncertainties, how many emotions. I feel something inside of me, but I don’t understand what it is. What is it Jesus? What do you want of me? I’m so puzzled […]Continua
15 years that I’ve been born. 15 years that I’m learning to know you, always more infinite and merciful. 15 years that my heart is beating for you. 15 years of roses and thorns, smiles and mistakes. 15 years that […]Continua
You’re young and with your friends, and every time you see a pretty boy, you laugh and dream up fantasies who might be so fortunate to marry him. You’re fragile and sensitive, shy, but in front of your friends you’re […]Continua
Oh, how much time has passed since I said for the first time, through crying and laughter, “Mother!” From her I have learned what I know and what I have given to my children. And to think that after having […]Continua
I’m rich, so rich to attract envy, not one villa, but thousand, not ten cars, but ten thousand. At my meals numerous servants that prepare abundant and delicious dishes. But still at night in my palace I feel alone. I’m […]Continua
Simpleness is the mirror of Christ’s face; a mirror that reflects purity and love, but also a great strength, in my everlasting fragility. It’s the smile of a kid happy and lighthearted, it’s the remorse of a son that, recognizing […]Continua
And then one day the light, the weeping, not of suffering, but almost of emotion. The hand of God upon a new soul; another project of love of Our Lord. And here a new life begins to walk, amongst rocks […]Continua
Goodmorning Jesus! Listen… The birds are chirping as the sun is rising; feel the fineness of the air! Let’s take a walk. One step after another trace the marks of our path. Listen, Jesus! The harmonious sound of the waves […]Continua
