Summary

The 1960's a time of peace and flowers. Music was the teenagers obsession and of course free love was celebrated. Well that's how the story goes... Here is a poem about the 60's we don't hear about, and the high cost some had to pay

A child of the swinging 60's

A mother all alone

No one to offer any help

And a father marked unknown

However could she keep her child

when all around screamed shame

Society frowned upon it...

And along adoption came

A problem to correct

Decisions for them to make

Unfit, unwed mother

Give birth for them to take

Middle class wealthy family

The balance seems just right

Rid the shameless mother

Leave her nothing left to fight

Baby goes to decent home

A husband and a wife

Never mind the mother

Who gave that very life

Even if a loving home

The child feels less than whole

So many unanswered questions

Fragmented in the soul

Empty aching arms

Two splintered lives to heal

A past that's gone forever

And years more pain to feel
