Chapter 1

Welcome to my first poetry collection I am 30 years old ex-soldier and was brought up in care ,I had to deal with abuse that was mentally, sexually and physical. I joined the army age 16 and 9 months and was in the Iraq war. Then at 22 I split from my ex-wife on domestic violence accounts due to her abuse and it was then where I suppose you could say I turned to drink and isolation to mask what was going on including flash backs, anxiety attacks.

In early 2012 I final broke down and took a massive over dose with a full bottle of jack Daniels and was taken in for psychology and was diagnosed with complexes PTSD.
Suffering from PTSD has been a long hard battle for the last couple of years but I am achieving things a long time ago, I thought was not possible, I have done this overcoming dyslexia, dyscalculia and scotopic sensitivity syndrome difficulties as well as my PTSD and IBS.

I used poetry to help me through my PTSD I have only just found a flare for poetry in the last few years itís been my one big strength in this book my poems take you on an emotional roller coaster and shows you some very dark themes but themes I believe need taking about.
