Daily Prompts; Bookworm

Down Into the Basement

http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Prompt

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it?

Would you recommend it?). To go further, write a post based on its

subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

The last book I read was called, A Child Called It.

Spoiled Food

Spoiled Food

dreams and wishes. 62/365

dreams and wishes.

It is written by Dave Pelzer. He is actually writing about himself.

Can you not hear

Me screaming

From my dark  room

You have given to me

Can you not see the

Fear in my eyes

As you throw me

A crumb to fill

My empty tummy

Can you please

Explain what I have

Done to deserve

This torture

Did you not want me

Was I born ugly or stained

All I wanted

Was to be loved.

Written by

Terry  Shepherd


I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever been abused in any way. It is about the strength that comes from deep within the soul to survive this ordeal and come out on top.

  1. Haven’t heard about the author or the book … used the link to Amazon – I think you have described the book in your poem very well … love your choice of images too.
    Now back to the vacuum cleaner.
