Tapped, Yet Unrooted: Poetic Word Slaughter Can toxic family secrets ever be forgiven or forgotten?


J.E. Rome's raw, visceral poetry is a personal and chronological journey through the hell of growing up in a dysfunctional family where when bad things happen, there's no one to blame but yourself.


Rome faces the skeletons in the closet head-on: from childhood trauma, abuse, and parental neglect to the soul-ravaging effects of poverty and addiction.


Graphic and hard-hitting, this unforgettable memoir, structured as a collection of poems, takes you through the darkest places of the human heart to the light of hope and truth.
