Best Poem of Linda Barnes

A World So Broken

I will leave this Earth
With a broken heart
Of all I have seen
And all that is not

I was allowed to grow up
Through rose colored glasses
Not having to witness
Streets so chaotic

Who would have believed
How this world would change
From celebrating Christmas
To dying for believing in same

Children of today
Have no clue or idea
What yesterday use to be
Or what tomorrow will bring

As a prayer is whispered
Will it calm their fears
As they cry themselves to sleep
Living in a world so broken

Read the full of A World So Broken

I Promise

The day you left Mom
I promised I would stay
But God had other plans it seems
A mistake, I would pray

You come to me in my dreams
I have always wondered why
Did you come to release me
From the promise I had vowed
