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.
