"Switched at Birth" - Illustrated Book of Poetry Tells a Story of Abuse and … Hope
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
Margaret Elaine Elgin wrote her latest book of poetry – with the evocative title Switched at Birth – because she "had more emotions to get out."
"A week after I was born, in Germany, a couple came up and kidnapped me. And they are emotionally abusive. Don't look at me that way! I don't know what they are going to do to me! I am embarrassed."
She exposes her true-life story of anguish, being abused as a child, and how she survived.
"I was kidnapped. I was used and I am being abused. I am scared and I am tired of this. I only recently found out that they're not my parents."
The author writes her feelings in poetic verse to help others survive and overcome abuse.
"I am proud that I am a good person in spite of this. And not just for some imaginary kiss. I have love. I have goodness. I believe. This is wrong. And I am not the only one to sing this song. We feel such pain It is hard to hold onto our bodies."
She hopes others can find "the joy of a quiet life. With no strife."
About the Author: Margaret Elaine Elgin suffered a recent stroke but finds refuge in writing. She has been a poet since early childhood. Originally from Los Angeles, she now lives in the Vallejo area of Oakland, California.
