A Chapter by Debbie Barry

Written at Basic Training, a poem about emotions and prayer.




July 6, 1987

I cry from pain
Asking God's help
In my troubled times;
Crying for strength
To survive the turmoils
Which swirl in my mind.
I am only a child,
And I am not strong.
I cannot survive alone.
Neither can I cry
On the shoulders of friends.
I cry for freedom
From my fear,
Asking God
To give me strength.
