Bay City, Texas   May 21, 2014   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) "Abused and Neglected," a new book by Kerry D. Roberson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co.

Pain, hatred, suffering-a chain reaction that forms the shackles that hold an individual down from happiness; the very chain that restrains him from seeing himself as someone worthy of love and the life he was given. What brings in these manacles that keep an individual from realizing his own worth? Answer-his own experiences with people who made him feel worthless and vulnerable.

In "Abused and Neglected," Kerry D. Reberson shares his collection of poetry that expresses his thoughts and emotions on being held down by his pain, hatred, and suffering, which began since he was a child and followed him through his adulthood. Through his poetry, he shares a glimpse of the hardships he suffered and his battle against the effects of being abused and neglected for the sake of love, happiness, and his inner peace.
