Knocking on the Wall

Trevor, one of the people we support, would like to share his book with you. It is called ‘Knocking on the Wall’.

Future Pathways supported Trevor to write his book in 2019. In the book, Trevor describes the different times of his life. He writes about the time with his family and also his life after leaving care. The book includes his time as a child in care homes.

Trevor wanted to share his own record of his time in care. And he wanted to explain the impact it had on his life. Trevor talks in his book about his experiences, thoughts and feelings.

It was important for Trevor to write his book. It gave him the chance to get his thoughts down on paper. He also wanted to make sure other people knew his story and he thought it might help them too.

The book includes some of Trevor’s poems. We have included two of them below.

If you would like a copy of Trevor’s book for free, he is happy to share it over email. You can ask for a copy by emailing Trevor at t.swistchew65@gmail.com or by emailing Future Pathways at engagement@future-pathways.co.uk.

Please note that the book does mention some instances of abuse.

LISTEN

Listen –

When it is dark

The sun is shining

When it is light

The sun is shining –

Always.

FREEDOM?

It is not bars a prison makes

It is what is in your head.

For each constructs within the mind

Their walls and locks and chains.

If you can look just for a while

At the views that you believe

You will start to see it is yourself

Whom you yourself deceive.

Freedom in the true sense

Is the end of all self-illusion.

Walk in love – harm no one.
