The Fearful child's lament

This can appear to be a haunting listen, but it gave voice to one of my inner children. This is the first time a 'silenced' young Joan was able to speak authentically to her parents who have both passed.

On returning from work one evening, I sat on the settee at home and the words flowed, along with the words the tune came, almost like magic!

Apart from the anger of my father very little emotion was shared in our household. Mum and Dad struggled to survive with each other and young Joan became petrified of Dad's anger and aggressive behaviour towards Mum, her protector. In this song and photo performance young Joan finds a voice to express her feelings.
