Best Poem of Douglas McClarty

A Child Of The Troubles.

I was a child of the troubles
Got to know about bombs and bullets
Empty parked cars were avoided
If you were a child of the troubles

Tit for tat murder on both sides
Wake up to another bloody day
Afraid sometimes to go out and play
If you were a child of the troubles

Worried always about my mum and dad
To see them get home I was always glad
Innocents were killed in so many towns
If you were a child of the troubles.

Some of my childhood friends didn't talk to me
Because they were the other side you see
It's all there fault or could it be ...

Read the full of A Child Of The Troubles.

A Poet To Be.

I'm no literary expert
still struggling to spell
Stringing two words
A challenge for me.
But I'm determined
To be a poet, writer maybe
Not to write about daffodils
Though I wish I could
Or to write about mice

[Hata Bildir]
