(Guest Poem from Dawn Bland written about the support Dawn received from CAP Wakefield)
Break down the Barriers
smash down the walls;
We need to get out there and spread the word!
Stop the stigma,
Life’s a struggle,
We all need hope;
Yes we are low on our luck,
But there’s a reason I ended up homeless,
Was it a relationship breakdown?
Perhaps my family didn’t want me anymore?
Just take a second to think,
There’s a reason I got to where I’m at.
