I would first like to thank all my friends for your encouragement and support for publishing my poetry book JOURNEY WITHIN. I also contacting you to let you know that the book is in it's final phase.
It would be more helpful if you contacted me at JOURNEYWITHINBOOK@YAHOO.COM
If you have not heard about my book yet, it is a story of my abuse and survival. I was incested by my father from infancy to 21 years old.
This book is a collection of poems I wrote to share my story. Writing these down has been an awesome healing process for me. I have also been honored by other people, who are survivors that have shared their own personal stories of survival with me. If you have not read any of my poems I will share one from the book below.
Please also share this with your friends too.....
Who's A Prisoner?
Do you know what it is like
To feel protected
Only in the presence
Of closed shades
And locked doors
And even then at times feel unsafe?
Daddy walks around
Going to wherever he may please.
I was once the prisoner,
Yet he still holds the keys.
The law says he can't harm me
And the time goes slowly by.
Do they know the torture that's still present
With every tear I cry?
I can't tell them how much
It hurts me
To know they let him roam.
Do they know I'm still imprisoned
In a place I should call home.
The law they say was made to protect me
And yet it's so unfair.
The victim waits and cries for justice
As abusers roam and breathe the air.
