Lost In The Fifties

By Barbara Lynn Terry



I am a child of the fifties,

My teen years the sixties,

I was torn like the land of Dixie,

But yet I was strong enough to survive.


Through the years, the fifties remain,

Deep in my mental domain,

As the years when I could laugh and play,

Until the dark set on me that day.


When the dark days came,

I was unable to claim,

My stolen childhood,

As I sat in my room to brood.


So when the dark days set on me,

I sit and listen to the songs that be

From that era, so I can laugh and play

Lost in the fifties today.

It certainly was a different time, in some ways simpler and in others so much more difficult. I too, a child of the 50's whose childhood was stolen from me, though in a different way than yours was, Barbie. Nice to read you again.
Take care,

Great write, Barbie; I too am a child of the fifties, born 1959. Will be forty nine in a month. YIKES! LOL (Feel like 79, with my back. *OW* LOL)

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
