The only anthology of poems written by men with histories of childhood sexual abuse. These poems express experiences and emotions with a directness and immediacy that is often not possible in conversation or other forms of writing. In this way, the poems can be very helpful for men going through similar experiences, and anyone who wants to understand them.
Belden’s powerful series of poems pulls no punches to convey the lows of reeling from the effects of a deeply traumatic childhood and the eventual highs of taking responsibility for his own healing.
