Biography of Barbara Vanier

Barbara Vanier poet

I would appreciate, if you have the time, to leave me your interpretations of what you read here. I enjoy the many aspects of thought that others have upon reading my poems. I was a young farm child. I moved to a fishing village when I was abut 10 and mother remarried. Somewhere around 12 I guess I was molested by my brother. It took years to realize it wasn't my fault and that what happened was wrong. In those years I found many self destructive habits. A constant through it all however was my desire to write my thoughts and feelings in poems or songs. At 46 I still do this today although the addictions are no longer present. Being able to put my thoughts and feelngs to pen has always made me feel better and sometimes allowed for a bit of healing as well. Three failed marriages and four children later I will continue to write. It may take time but I will try my best to share with you who and what I am.

Black And Blue

I strain to see through darkened glass
journey through to see the past
from what I see it's as empty as me
because of black and blue on me

Everyone looking out their window
when the sun shines it can never get through
because of black and blue on me
and because it's on you too

[Hata Bildir]
