Author Sammy Lee Gott was one of four boys in a dysfunctional family, raised by alcoholics. Despite this difficult beginning, he survived and prospered. In Poetry of a Dysfunctional Family, Gott-with his brother Gerald-shares through his recollections and poetry an understanding of some of the factors that make a family dysfunctional and explores ways to break the generational cycle of abuse. He believes understanding is the key-knowing that the pain and stress from the abuse of childhood lasts far into adulthood and that God is the key ingredient needed to recovery. In these verses, Gott puts into words what needed to be said when he could not find the courage to speak. He also tells the love story that arose between an abused man and the woman who worked to understand and help heal him. In this collection, one man recalls his dysfunctional family and abusive childhood in prose and poetry, knowing that the healing process begins with love and ends with forgiveness.
