A Chapter by Debbie Barry

A poem about a friend.




May 16, 1995

Darkness glows from youthful eyes;
No innocence revealed there.
Instead a wisdom from of old
Lurks within the man child.

Power coiled behind the eyes
Seeks to loose its bonds.
Self control the one defense
Against the searing flame of evil.

Youth knows not the evil power
Which the man child now wields.
Youthful strength of character
Modifies its fearsome force.

Behind the eyes the power lies;
The man child commands it.
Power of evil tamed by youth
Used for his own purposes.

For Greg.
