I wanted to write poetry about the long term effects Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse has on a person. Seeing, hearing and living with it from a young age. All Abuse is wrong, yet so many people live with it daily, going unheard … well … here is their voice.

"Re: Lost Chilhood " Over the last year of knowing you on poets.com you have grown from a boy to a man,you have shown great courage and great strengh.. "The stillness of the water" was masterfull and I stand by my comment you are the next young Alfred Tennyson born in 1809 reborn to date.. you take care my poet friend and I will tell all my friends (I dont think your book cover is great,however people should see past that)great read well done
"Re: Re: Lost Chilhood " Peter you’re an inspiration to all the former lad’s that are suffering the effects of the WHSS reading your book brought tears down my face as we are still living the nightmares of are childhood, myself I can’t put my head down to sleep I’m 41 & have spent most of my adult life hiding away from people as like peter we were told that we were worthless & we have a issue of trust as time & time again the people that we were forced to trust abused us day & night even by taking us out are beds & being forced on by a members of staff, they took everything from us even are own self respect in the past I have sat with a bottle of pills wanting to bring an end to it all it’s only the strong will of my wife that keeps me going even with the dark shadows of my childhood, I would love for all the pain to go away so like peter we can just get on with life but this will never be the case as the damage has been done I hope no other children will... More > experience what me & peter did as children I hope this book will be the start of people understanding what it was like to be a child in the 60s 70s 80s & to be placed in the WHSS God bless you Peter for your book you are the light at the end of the very dark tunnel< Less
