  1. Danielle Parent

    “Your poems are very touching ..very powerful, and not sugar coated, describing with precision the ugliness of the abuse and its destructive long term effect on one’s self-image and personality. Without being self loathed or bashing in one particular the poems are condemning the actions from the perpetrators, and the lack of actions from the onlookers, definitely bringing to light the silence and shame being imposed on the victims of abuse..(in every form and shape or spectrum of the abuse..not only sexual, but emotional, physical)

    You definitely paint mental canvasses in the readers’ minds with words strategically and artistically composed! Your poems hit like a ton of bricks at those who pretend that everything is alright around them, that nothing is going on..denial of reality. They are tearing down the mask of the ones who by their silences are enabling the abuse to happen and can no longer pretend it isn’t. They are just as guilty by their silence as the pedophiles. Plain and simple! As an old advertisement used to say .. You come a long!”

      Thanks so much Danielle for your marvellous support of my efforts. Your praise is humbling as I know how sincere you are in what you say. Thank you for encouraging me to keep on doing what I’m doing to increase awareness of child sexual abuse and incest, and I look forward to your review of my book, NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER at when you are ready to post it.

      Dear Angela

      Thanks for leaving me such a heart-touching comment. How well I understand. My book was written with people with you in mind. My hope was that by doing so, you will realize you are not alone, and that perhaps one day, you too will find the strength to share your story. Only by speaking out can we help those who yet can’t. Perhaps you will find my second book, LEARNING TO LOVE MYSELF, a better place to start: it shows how, once we remove ourselves from our abuser(s), in the struggles we’ve endured we find the strength we need to grow, rid ourselves of the voices, our abusers’ and our own, that are holding us back, and learn to love ourselves as we deserve to be loved. Give yourself time and patience to heal. You can heal.
