Some of you know my back ground, I've had alot of emotional , physical and sexual abuse as a kid and adult. I left home at 15 and lived on streets, started drinking at 15, lost a partner due to heroin at 19. Never really recovered, have mental health issues and now diagnosed with bi polor, and hear voices. Moved to Yorkshire 4 years ago after having a break down, since moving here I learnt to channel my emotions and feelings into writing it in poetry form and painting abstract art, I've been sober for 11 months now and in therapy, I did a detox programme with turning point which basically saved my life, so any money I get from selling this book will be donated to them. I'd like to share my poetry with others that maybe going through same things and finding life just bit to much to cope with. I will be saving my pennies to to cover the cost of self publishing just need Abit of a helping hand .
