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.

Dieing To See You

Evil burned into my brain someone tell me what to do
Show me the rein of hope tell me how to live it
There is at this point in my life no greater pain and anguish
That I feel than that of my flesh waring against my spirit

Now you sleep with angels and I lay in despair
Why did you have to go and leave me all alone
You bread the butter of desire with the marmalade of riches
Set me aside and pray to God that He'll take me home
