Flower Children Of The 60s (Poem)
Peace and Love was the sign of the flower child
In the sixties, the young were passive not wild
They believed in peace, love, - giving, and sharing
Often judged, - not by their deeds, but for what they
Their parents were hardcore, most of them survivors of war
Worked hard for their children, to see they were provided for
To them freedom had a whole different meaning,
Found it hard to understand - why their children were
Lack of understanding made the young feel as though they
Were caught in a trap
So Far Away (Poem)
Strolling along - the city sidewalk,
I feel at awe, with such a peaceful flow - of travel.
Those I meet, will pause and smile,
Then soothe my soul, with gentle talk.
This fe’lin within, is so hard - to unravel,
Is this the land - where I was raised?
What fills this day, with such enchantment?
I feel as though - I should give praise.
