A Chapter by Debbie Barry

Written at Basic Training, a poem dedicated to Basic Training.




July 5, 1987

My tears fall,
My eyes are red,
My heart breaks,
I am in pain.

I feel so lost,
I feel deserted -
I know I have love,
But the past is too near.

I want help,
I need assurance,
I need an ear
To listen to me.

I need to think
In peace and quiet,
I need to find
A viable future.

For Basic Training.
