Children (pixabay.com

This is a poem that I am dedicating to my parents

who were children of the Depression.

C is for children of caring,

H is for home and health, for some had neither,

I is for initiative; for they could think of anything,

L is for the love they had,

D is for dedication to their families,

R is for ready for anything,

E is education they wanted, but some had to choose,

to continue to go to school or go to work,

N is for nightmares at times for they did not know what

will happen to them.

Of the

D is for dependability on oneself and family,

E is edification of what is known,

P is pride that one must show to all,

R is for respect that was taught and shown by most,

E is for exciting ties that bind together,

S is for security of family and friends,

S is for the saftey that one feels with said family and friends,

I is for the innovations that did occur during this time,

O is for the opportunities that did happen along at times,

N is for just a nice time to get to know.
