A Mother's Tears

Sad Poems

I look into the eyes

Of my little baby girl,

Thoughts run through my mind, "What was I thinking

When I brought you into this world?"

"The world can be,

Such a cruel place,

Wars and bloodshed

Are wiping out the human race."

I love my baby girl

With all my soul,

I look into your eyes

It's my heart you stole.

Don't get me wrong

I adore your little face,

But I cry tears of sadness

Thinking about what will take place.

I don't want you to grow up

Just thinking there is violence,

Think about all the good things

When you're alone in silence.

I had a couple of lines in my head and went with the flow.

I worry alot about my youngest siblings. Remembering what school was like for me at that age, it's hard to let them walk out the door each day. I've enjoyed reading your poetry, although I like your freeverse much better.
