EXPLAINING  THE  bjtherapypoems.com  SITE

          As I was abused for many years, I was also in counseling for many years after the buried memories came flooding back.  This site contains poems that I wrote during that time, and afterwards.  Since my therapist knew that my poetry was my main way to get difficult situations that I needed to talk about out, he would assign me different topics to write about.  The poems on this site are the majority of those poems, as well as others that I have written since then.  I hope that maybe the poems can help others that might be going through some of the things that I went through.  If they help just one person, then my suffering will not have been in vain.

          This site contains many poems of various subjects from anger, abuse, death, suicide, and dreams and hopes, to “I Have To Resolve Within Myself”.  I was assigned many of the topics to write poems about by my therapist, as he knew that poetry was my main avenue to getting my inner feelings out.

          I am a survivor of every type of abuse up until I was 20 years old.  For another 16 years I buried all the memories until one day everything inside me exploded.  The poems are the result of an additional 20 years in and out of the hospitals to work on all of the memories.  There are still times to this day that a memory here and there will surface and throw me for a loop, but I am able to bounce back fairly quickly these days thanks to my continued poetry writing.

          Also in this site are poems about my medical problems and surgeries and hospitalizations.  Here again it is my poetry that has gotten me through with my main help coming from God.  For it is my gift from God of being able to write the poetry to begin with that has truly saved me.  I have a wonderful God!
