The Poem

A poem I wrote for my English class a year ago. It's about the counterculture of the 1960's. Copyrighted to me, Aoharu.

Counterculture of the 1960's poem
By: Aoharu

Flower power and community love,
that's what we're thinking of
With all the war and turmoil
It's us vs them kind of word
With rigid bodies that,
built up their rigid minds
Long hair, Flowy dresses, Tie dye
Expresses our minds that show,
that we are free
Them,
trapped in the dark
Silenced and hardly free
Move as a herd,
walking in a straight line
Obeying the society tyranny
Us with our freedoms,
we shall set you free
But they attacked what they don't understand
Not understanding,
entered America into more turmoil
Tearing us apart as we're trying to live
as ourselves
Individuals but a community,
the same
Rock n' Roll leads to enhancement of creativity, the substance of pretty colors
Mushed together,
mixing together but
Unlike them,
we are not a gray tint
Wood are stocked up and up like a wall
Music and joy at one, riot and violence at the other
they buried in so long
wanna bury us in too
but our colors reach too far up to be stopped
their gray covers world,
which is starting to infect
everything, everything, everything, everything, everything
even us
returned back into nothing

The End
