Not every family is perfect. Scratch that, no family is perfect. I am sure many of us have family secrets. Things we have either blocked out by choice, or maybe there are still things abut your childhood that haunt you? You are not alone. Proof is in this poem by Patrick Roche.

Patrick's father was an alcoholic. In a poem titled '21', he shares his struggles and what his life was like for his family. If you have thought of poetry as boring, you most likely will not after watching this.
