Last Night I had a DreamMind Guards the Gate

You are cordially invited to a Poetry Reading and Book Signing Event in the Black Rock Reading Garden by Poet & Essayist Raymond Tucker reciting from his newly published book, Mind Guards the Gate: A book of inspirational poetry and essays written to and for those who have suffered and continue to suffer childhood sexual abuse and trauma.

It is estimated that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys under the age of twelve are sexually abused by someone they know.

                    “Last Night I had a Dream”

I saw a little boy

Who did not understand,

What was being done to him

At his fathers hand;

With nowhere to run

And no place to hide,

He built himself a box

Deep inside his mind
