If Only

Poem By D.M. Barber

I sit and wonder
Look around
See the children
Listen to their sound

The sweetness of innocents
Echoes in my mind
I try to remember
When life was that fine

These kids are so lucky
So able to live
They are so free
But still wish they were me

I am grown up
Cool and hip
But what you see here is only the tip

Deep down inside
Im shattered and broken
But the words which I speak
Aren’t truly spoken

Coz I am abused,
A tool unused
Ignored by some
Hated by most
But I will haunt them
When I’m merely a ghost

So shut the door
Again and again
Block me out
Coz im not your friend

One day you’ll need me
And I’ll nod my head
I’d gladly help
If I wasn’t dead.

Acid Rain

Acid rain
Is falling down
Feel the pain
And touch the sound

Dead World

I see the world falling apart around me
Because the ozone layer, war and polital power surround me

I have no voice but here is how I feel

I Don'T Lie

The CIA told me to go away
Told me to come back some other day,
But im not to blame
I swear it wasn’t a plane

Hair On Fire

when theres a fight
to my despite
i am the one remembered
but if im winning, i'll be grinning

Another Woman

If I was a girl
I’d be aslut
Coz alli do now
Is aim for the mutt

Broken Hearted

The hunger within
Can’t break the fast
You broke my heart
You were the last
